This pilot study showed that variability in the sequence quality scores exists within and between laboratories performing human leukocyte antigen typing by sequence-based typing (SBT). It also showed that the base call score (BCS) system in Assign-SBT is a useful tool for comparing sequence quality between laboratories.
