This article summarizes the results of mitochondrial DNA (mtDNA) mutation analysis of a large cohort of patients with suspected mitochondrial disease using three different approaches — screening for common mtDNA point mutations and large deletions, sequencing the entire mtDNA by Sanger sequencing, and mtDNA mutation analyses employing Next-Generation sequencing (mtWGS-NGS). We demonstrate that the comprehensive mtWGS-NGS methodology can simultaneously detect mtDNA point mutations with high sensitivity, accurately quantify mutation heteroplasmy, and detect large mtDNA deletions with breakpoints precisely mapped.
