Mutation Testing

(testing)
A method to determine test set thoroughness by measuring the extent to which a test set can discriminate the program from slight variants of the program.

In the early testing strategy, population identification was critically important as targeted mutation analysis was performed.
NeoGenomics now provides mutation analysis of the following genes, either individually or as a group: SF3B1, U2AF1, SRSF2, ZRSR2, RUNX1, EZH2, ASXL1, TET2, TP53, NRAS, CBL, PTPN11, IDH1/2 and ETV6.
Mutation analysis showed that out of 70 endometrial cancer samples, 34% samples showed Kras gene mutation in exon 1.
This new high-performance platform includes a complete software package for the study of genetic and epigenetic variation of genes, providing CpG methylation allele quantification and mutation analysis. These studies are used for a wide range of clinical research, for example the identification and tracking of changes involved in various forms of cancer.
Thirty-two contributions are organized into sections on automatic test case generation; techniques, methods and tools; model-based testing; PhD papers; fault localization and prediction; constraint-based testing and constraint solving; posters; model-based mutation; mutation analysis tools; experimentation with mutation; and mutation for security testing.
Last fall, Beckman Coulter introduced the CEQ 8800 Genetic Analysis System featuring sample tracking capabilities and higher throughput for applications ranging from mutation analysis to SNP scoring and confirmatory sequencing.
These tests include polymerase chain reaction mutation analysis, linkage analysis, triplet repeat analysis, and sequence analysis.
Mutation analysis by the reverse dot blot technique (Roche Molecular Systems, Somerville, N.J.) indicated Jake (II:1) carried both a AF508 and G551D mutation in the CFTR gene (Figure 1).
minimum requirements for the equipment to be purchased: - the mutation analysis must be automatic, at least for sample handling, dna / rna secretion and mutation analysis, and the device must switch automatically from one stage to another.
As shown by Reynolds et al, (43) mutation analysis using next-generation sequencing can be successfully performed on residual cell pellets derived from LBC samples.
Mutation analysis of the TCIRG1 gene was performed using direct DNA sequencing of polymerase chain reaction-amplified exons.
Menkes disease (MD)(OMIM: 309400) is also known as kinky hair disease, trichopoliodystrophy, and steely hair.1 It is a rare disorder with frequency being estimated to be 1 in 114,000-250,000 live births.2 Menkes disease is diagnosed on the basis of history, physical findings and lab investigations including copper and ceruloplasmin level as well as hair shaft microscopy.3 Mutation analysis leads to the definitive diagnosis.
