  • Patent number: 11466308
    Abstract: Systems and methods for using determination of base modification in analyzing nucleic acid molecules and acquiring data for analysis of nucleic acid molecules are described herein. Base modifications may include methylations. Methods to determine base modifications may include using features derived from sequencing. These features may include the pulse width of an optical signal from sequencing bases, the interpulse duration of bases, and the identity of the bases. Machine learning models can be trained to detect the base modifications using these features. The relative modification or methylation levels between haplotypes may indicate a disorder. Modification or methylation statuses may also be used to detect chimeric molecules.

  • Publication number: 20220275433
    Abstract: Methods and systems described herein involve using long cell-free DNA fragments to analyze a biological sample from a pregnant subject. The status of methylated CpG sites and single nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs) is often used to analyze DNA fragments of a biological sample. A CpG site and a SNP are typically separated from the nearest CpG site or SNP by hundreds or thousands of base pairs. Finding two or more consecutive CpG sites or SNPs on most cell-free DNA fragments is improbable or impossible. Cell-free DNA fragments longer than 600 bp may include multiple CpG sites and/or SNPs. The presence of multiple CpG sites and/or SNPs on long cell-free DNA fragments may allow for analysis than with short cell-free DNA fragments alone. The long cell-free DNA fragments can be used to identify a tissue of origin and/or to provide information on a fetus in a pregnant female.
