[…] mosaicism in epilepsy patients through gene panels and WES with the sequencing depth of mosaic variants ranging from 42X to 2574X. In addition, King et al. developed a method for detecting mosaicism (MrMosaic) (King et al., ) and determined the accuracy for detecting mosaicism in targeted NGS (gene panels and WES) and WGS increased with sequencing depth. An example of this is the detection of hete […]
