Introduction Whole-genome sequencing data must go through extensive quality control measures to ensure that the variants identified in an individual’s genome are true biological differences and not the result of errors that can occur throughout the many stages of sample preparation and sequencing. Many such errors can be avoided by collecting, storing, transferring, and preparing the biological samples according to established best practices. Human error is inevitable, however, and sometimes a few DNA samples will get degraded or oxidized or sloshed into another well of the plate, etc.
