Quality Control Statistics


CIDR is dedicated to producing the highest quality data for our investigators. These cumulative quality control statistics are based on data from 419 released CIDR Program studies consisting of ~925,000 samples. The error rate is calculated from investigator-supplied blind duplicates.



Error Rate
