CAP, AMP Release New Gene Panel Validation Guidelines

On March 23, 2017, CAP and AMP released a new, 25-page guideline to validation of next generation sequence panels.   The article, Jennings et al, has its journal home page here, PDF link here, and in the cloud, here.

For coverage at Genomeweb, here.  This is the third recent guidance for standards in next generation sequence; see also Ritter et al. for guidelines on new standards for annotating and curating somatic tumor variants (here) and Li et al. on new standards for clinically reporting somatic tumor variants (here).

Abstract of Jennings et al. clipped after the break.
