An evaluation of imputation accuracy in a recently released open-access genomic dataset using low-pass sequencing

In this blog post, we describe some imputation performance benchmarks for a recently released haplotype reference panel from the Martin Lab comprising haplotypes from high-depth sequence data from the 1000 Genomes project and the Human Genome Diversity Project and compare them against corresponding benchmarks for the New York Genome Center's resequencing effort of the 1000 Genomes project.

Low pass sequencing plus imputation in cattle outperforms imputation from genotyping arrays

Over the past decade, the cost of genome sequencing has significantly decreased, leading to a rise in popularity of alternative sequencing methods such as low-pass whole genome sequencing instead of genotyping arrays. To meet this demand, at Gencove, we offer a cost-effective solution for generating genome-wide information by providing low-pass whole genome sequencing plus imputation as a high-throughput alternative to genotyping arrays. Our previous research has already established that low-pass whole genome sequencing outperforms traditional genotyping arrays in terms of imputation in humans (Li et al., 2021). In this blog post, we describe the results of a recent experiment where we demonstrate that imputation using low-pass whole genome sequencing is also superior to genotyping arrays in cattle.

Get the Utility of Sequencing at the Cost of a Microarray

Gencove’s low-pass sequencing platform is at cost-per-sample price parity with many microarray assays across a wide range of species in both plants and animals. That makes Gencove the best choice for getting the utility of sequencing data at microarray prices.

Three Ways Gencove’s Low-Pass Whole Genome Sequencing is Modernizing the Drug Discovery Process

Pharmaceutical companies use Whole Exome Sequencing (WES) in their drug discovery and development process. However, R&D teams still need a comprehensive view of genomic variation outside the exome. Historically, the only way to augment WES was with arrays, but now pharma companies have an alternative - low-pass whole genome sequencing.
