Tumor heterogeneity has been known for a while but quantifying heterogeneity is still a challenge. NGS is the method of choice in the analysis of tumor heterogeneity, however, there are some inherent challenges associated with it. These include false positives, gaps in the gene due to overrepresentation and incomplete representation of low-frequency transcripts – all contributing to an inaccurate picture. Conventional library prep strategies for NGS are based on PCR, which introduces sequence-based bias and amplification noise, leading to these inaccuracies.
