Mangul Lab submits preprint of a WGS-based structural variant callers benchmarking study

Mangul Lab at USC shared a new preprint which presents a benchmarking study of structural variant (SV) callers – computational tools for identifying genomic regions that have altered DNA and may be implicated in various diseases and disorders. Varuni Sarwal, alumnus of Serghei’s group at UCLA, is the first [...]

Interview in Nature Methods: Bench pressing with genomics benchmarkers

A journalist with Nature Methods recently interviewed Serghei on the increasingly important role that benchmarking studies play in biomedical and life science research. Benchmarking studies, which rank bioinformatics software according to variables such as speed, accuracy, and precision, help researchers select the best tool for a given dataset and research [...]

Mangul Lab publishes second paper – a benchmarking study of error correction methods

Today we celebrate the publication of our second peer-reviewed paper since Mangul Lab launched at USC Keith Mitchell, alumnus of Serghei’s group at UCLA, is the first author of  “Benchmarking of computational error-correction methods for next-generation sequencing data,” which is now available online. Jaque (our postdoc), Lana (our project [...]
