BioNano Saphyr instrument at NSC

Next Generation Cytogenomics has also arrived at the NSC! Optical mapping is a complementary technology to sequencing that enables improved genome assembly and the detection of structural variants (indels, translocations and CNVs) that sequencing struggles to detect. With high coverage of the genome, even low-frequency rearrangements in tumour samples or genetic mosaics can be detected.
