Visualizing exome coverage depth

The coverage of a base pair in a sequencing run is the number of times that it was sequenced. We usually estimate coverage in an intuitive way: by comparing the total amount of measurement to the total amount of stuff to be measured. Dividing the total length of the reads by the length of the target gives the coverage depth and is often simply expressed as a multiplier: “40x,” “20x,” and so ...
