Navigating the technology landscape for population-scale predictive genomics

This white paper scrutinizes the complementary capabilities of whole-genome sequencing (WGS), low-pass sequencing (LPS), and genome-wide microarrays. It discusses the advantages and trade-offs of each technology in the context of genomic discovery and variant calling in populations and supports researchers to make holistic technology choices.
