While next-generation technologies have revolutionized the way genomes are sequenced, this technology possesses a fundamental weakness - the inability to easily target specific regions of a genome. To address this inefficiency in the workflow, a variety of methodologies for performing DNA target enrichment are being developed and commercialized. All methods have a particular "sweet spot" for performance: some are more appropriate for smaller studies, where only a few samples are being examined, while others have the ability to scale and use automation for studies ranging from low to ultra-high throughput. Costs, in terms of equipment and consumables, can also vary, depending on the technology used.
You are invited to join the discussion of strategies for DNA target enrichment with our panel of distinguished thought leaders in a live video webinar. During the broadcast, the presenters will:
- Provide a general introduction to the target enrichment methods they use
- Discuss how these technologies can be applied to the next-generation sequencing workflow
- Share data from studies that have benefited from their approach
- Answer your questions live!
