Nextera Rapid Capture Exome: New data sets, new manifest, and new analysis tools!

We are happy to introduce two new Nextera Rapid Capture Exome data sets in BaseSpace:

  • 12 exome samples sequenced (on 1 flow cell) on HiSeq 2500®
  • 1 exome sample sequenced on MiSeq

These exome data sets demonstrate the accuracy of the HiSeq 2500 & MiSeq sequencing platforms, the improved enrichment metrics from using the new targeted region manifest v1.2, and the power and ease of use of the BaseSpace BWA Enrichment App.

Be sure to take a look and compare the difference between the data sets analyzed with manifest v1.1 and v1.2. Both manifest versions are available for use in BaseSpace now.  The v1.2 manifest files will be available for download from the Illumina support web site in the near future and a URL will be provided in an update to this blog post.
