Validation of a semiconductor next-generation sequencing assay for the clinical genetic screening of CFTR
Genetic testing for cystic fibrosis and CFTR-related disorders mostly relies on laborious molecular tools that use Sanger sequencing to scan for mutations in the CFTR gene. We have explored a more efficient genetic screening strategy based on next-generation sequencing of the CFTR gene.
