Dear all, Maybe this is a naive question but I want to ask you what theshould you use in read depth to consider that the variant may indeed be worth for further study (sanger sequence)and it's not a false result?

I read about 20, I don't remember where, but I'm not sure if is a good limit or not. Thank you

Hi Rute,

For Sanger sequencing typically you would look at the Chromatograms. Here is a nice webpage that provides additional details.

If you goal is to view a chromatogram to view ab files and assess SNP calls from Sanger sequencing, there are a variety of free tools (genestudio, Sequence Scanner, 4 peaks, etc…).

Kind Regards,
