Next-generation sequencing (NGS) is used to interrogate large sets of genes in a diagnostic setting. Regions of high sequence homology are a major challenge and can lead to false-positive and false-negative diagnostic errors. This webinar will provide a perspective on how to deal with medically important genes that have high sequence homology in a diagnostic setting.
