NGS Guide to Human Whole Genome Sequencing

NGS Guide to Human Whole Genome Sequencing

Dafne Alves Winders NOVOGENE Technical Support Scientist


Human whole-genome sequencing (hWGS) is a powerful Next Generation Sequencing (NGS) service that delivers a high-resolution comprehensive view of the entire human genome. It empowers researchers to catalog the genetic constitution of individuals and capture all variants (single-nucleotide variations (SNVs), insertions and deletions (InDels), copy number variations (CNVs), and large structural variants (SV) present, to identify inherited disorders, characterize mutations that drive cancer progression, track disease outbreaks and so much more.

Equipped with Illumina’s NovaSeq 6000, Novogene can sequence up to 280,000 human genomes per year at the lowest cost per genome possible. With the addition of Oxford Nanopore PromethION and PacBio Sequel Systems, Novogene also provides hWGS services with a more complete and accurate characterization of the human genome, that complements missing sequencing reads, especially in highly polymorphic and highly repetitive regions, from short reads sequencing.

In this webinar, you will learn about how Novogene’s extensive expertise, optimized workflow, and customizable bioinformatics analysis options work in concert with our data output and quality guarantees, to meet your hWGS project goals.

The 30-minute webinar will consist of a live presentation followed by a live Q&A session.
