PUBLICATION: Occult Specimen Contamination in Routine Clinical Next-Generation Sequencing Testing

GPS faculty recently published a paper in American Journal of Clinical Pathology that describes a new method to detect specimen admixture in NGS testing. Abstract from PubMed OBJECTIVES: To evaluate the extent of human-to-human specimen contamination in clinical next-generation sequencing (NGS) data. METHODS: Using haplotype analysis to detect specimen admixture, with orthogonal validation by short tandem repeat […]
