Targeted NGS

Join our webinar:

Expanding Your Research Capabilities Using Targeted NGS

Target enrichment enables researchers to focus their next generation sequencing (NGS) efforts on regions of interest, allowing them to obtain more sequencing data relevant to their study. In-solution target capture is a method of enrichment using oligonucleotide probes directed to specific regions within a genome. Target capture can be used to enrich multiple samples simultaneously, reducing the cost per sample, while using individually synthesized probes allows researchers to construct gene panels that can be optimized over time.

Rami Zahr, NGS Field Applications Specialist, and Ibrahim Jivanjee, NGS Product Manager at IDT, will discuss how to incorporate xGen® Target Capture products into your workflow to get more out of your sequencing. Applications to be discussed include targeting whole genes, transposons and viral integration sites, translocations, and splice variants, as well as genotyping.
