Novel Algorithms for Improved Sensitivity in Non Invasive Prenatal Testing

Sci Rep
PMCID: 5431782
PMID: 28500333
DOI: 10.1038/s41598-017-02031-5

[…] , these algorithms may have a broader applicability than NIPT analysis, for instance in analysis of copy number variations in liquid biopsy data. We recommend our novel algorithms, as included in the NIPTeR package, as a useful addition to the NIPT analysis toolbox, resulting in a higher sensitivity, in theory making it possible to detect trisomies in blood with a fetal DNA amount as low as 2%.
