Improving the accuracy of genomic analysis
Sequencing genomes enables us to identify variants in a person’s DNA that indicate genetic disorders such as an elevated risk for breast cancer. DeepVariant is an open-source variant caller that uses a deep neural network to call genetic variants from next-generation DNA sequencing data. Learn more
Highly accurate genomes with deep neural networks
Despite rapid advances in sequencing technologies, accurately calling genetic variants present in an individual genome from billions of short, errorful sequence reads remains challenging. As published in Nature Biotechnology, DeepVariant significantly improves the accuracy in identifying variant locations, reducing the error rate by more than 50%.
