  • 500ng input
  • 38Mb Exome Design
  • Somatic Variant Detection
  • 150X MTC
  • 21 calendar day TAT 


The Clinical Whole Exome Sequencing with Somatic Analysis is a technical exome product useful for discovery of somatic variants that do not have well-characterized associations with disease biology, including rare coding variants. The deliverable for our Somatic test is a technical report, Picard-generated aggregated, aligned BAM files, somatic and InDel mutation annotation format (MAF) files through the Broad’s cancer analysis Firehose pipeline. The technical report outlines process specifications and sample performance. The VCF/ MAF files list all single nucleotide and indel variants identified by the analytics pipeline. All files are accessible via a dedicated, secure data portal. Data will be stored in accordance with relevant federal and state regulations for CLIA or clinical trials testing as appropriate.
