Abstract

Next-generation sequencing is emerging as a reliable and accurate technology for pre-implantation genetic diagnosis (PGD) of aneuploidies and translocations. The aim of this study was to extend the clinical utility of copy number variation sequencing (CNV-Seq) to the detection of small pathogenic copy number variations (CNVs) associated with chromosome disease syndromes. In preliminary validation studies, CNV-Seq was highly sensitive and specific for detecting small CNV in whole-genome amplification products from three replicates of one and five cell samples, with a resolution in the order of 1-2 Mb. Importantly, the chromosome positions of all CNV were correctly mapped with copy numbers similar to those measured in matching genomic DNA samples. In seven clinical PGD cycles where results were obtained for 34 of 35 blastocysts, CNV-Seq identified 18 blastocysts with aneuploidies, one with an aneuploidy and a 4.98 Mb 5q35.2-qter deletion associated with Sotos syndrome, one with a 6.66 Mb 7p22.1-pter deletion associated with 7p terminal deletion syndrome and 14 with no detectable abnormalities that were suitable for transfer. On the basis of these findings, CNV-Seq displays the hallmarks of a comprehensive PGD technology for detection of aneuploidies and CNVs that are known to affect the development and health of patient's embryos.
