Annotating and Cataloging CNVs in VarSeq

Abstract

In this webcast recording, we will be showing users the process of annotating and filtering CNVs in VarSeq. This will include a discussion of available annotation sources and a demonstration of how these annotations may be utilized in VarSeq filter chains to identify clinically relevant CNVs. We will also discuss CNV assessment catalogs as a mechanism for tracking common CNVs and identifying relevant previously classified events.
