For genotyping applications, what is the recommended minimum sequencing coverage per assay?

We recommend a minimum of 20 reads to accurately call genotypes in diploid species with heterozygosity (i.e., 50% allele frequencies). For polyploid species or somatic mutations with lower allele frequencies, your minimum coverage may need to be higher.
