Whole exome sequencing (WES) has been used widely in human genetic studies. It is thought to be a cost effective approach and can provide a great deal of information at very high resolution. In this basic research skills workshop, I will introduce the fundamental concepts of WES such as capture regions and quality control. Apart from the cost, data throughput and computational capacity, topics will also cover some current techniques and basic bioinformatics analysis for WES. I will also discuss both the benefits and limitations of WES.
