- Automated Trace
Quality Assessment (ATQA) for DNA Sequencing - The explosive growth in
the use of DNA sequences in research, therapeutics, and forensics requires
that the quality of the sequence data be objectively assessable.
- Results of Testing
- Daniel H. Wagner Associates subjected the ATQA scoring model to
extensive testing and validation. The model was tested to assure that it
was properly calibrated and that the assigned scores corresponded to
comparable error rates. We considered classifiers based on the scorer and
evaluated them by the number of misclassifications that occurred. In both
cases the model performed exceptionally well.
Score Examples - Examples of quality scores with associated trace
- Confidence Scoring of
Consensus DNA Base Calls - Daniel H. Wagner Associates has developed
algorithms to judge the accuracy of DNA consensus base calls. The algorithms
assign a confidence score to each consensus call. The score
corresponds to the probability that the consensus call is incorrect.
- Statistical Pattern
Recognition of DNA Mixtures - Heteroplasmy occurs when a mutation in a
mitochondrial DNA (mtDNA) molecule within a cell leads to a mixture of
mutant and normal mtDNA molecules. Heterozygosity occurs when a diploid
organism or cell has inherited different alleles at a particular locus from
each parent. Both cases result in mixtures of DNA sequences that have
important applications in
forensics, pathology, and evolutionary genetics. The automated detection
of DNA mixtures is an important tool in harnessing these genetic features,
and is the focus of ongoing research at Daniel H. Wagner Associates.
- CATS Basecaller -
CATS can read several chromatogram formats, work with raw or processed trace
data, and determine basecalls and basecall locations.
- Sequencing Quality Control
by Trace Quality Scores - DNA sequencing is a very accurate process.
Consequently, a large number of sequencing runs may be needed to discern a
statistically meaningful difference in error rates between two sequencing
Refinement by Stochastic Sampling - Daniel H. Wagner Associates has
developed algorithms to improve assemblies of DNA sequences by local
- Sequence Determination
by Hybridization - Sequencing by hybridization is a potentially
important technique for decreasing the time and money required for DNA
sequencing. Advances in this technique may also provide the mechanism for
the development of quick and precise genetic diagnostic tests.
- Diagnosis and Quantitative
Assessment of Osteoarthritis by Electromechanical Spectroscopy -
Osteoarthritis (OA) is a disease of the articular cartilage (AC) that
cripples millions. Early detection of OA can provide the possibility of
reversing the damage.
