Whole Exome Sequencing (WES) enables researchers to focus on the genes most likely to affect disorder or phenotype by selectively sequencing the coding regions of a genome. Mice, Mus musculus, are important model organisms for human disease research and drug development. Novogene’s mouse whole exome sequencing (mWES) empowers you to identify causative mutations in mice with phenotypes, which may directly lead to the discovery of human disease genes.Service Specifications

Sequencing error rate distribution
Note: The x-axis represents position in reads, and the y-axis represents the average error rate of bases of all reads at a position.
GC content distribution
Note: The x-axis is position in reads, and the y-axis is percentage of each type of bases (A, T, G, C); different bases are distinguishable by different colors.
Sequencing depth & coverage distribution
Note: Average sequencing depth (bar plot) and coverage (dot-line plot) in each chromosome. The x-axis represents chromosome; the left y-axis is the average depth; the right y-axis is the coverage (proportion of covered bases).
