Improving NGS Target Capture


Improving NGS Target Capture

Target capture methods allow for enrichment of selected regions of interest from DNA samples prior to next generation sequencing (NGS). By selecting target regions, or expression subsets, investigators can maximize both the number of samples that they can analyze and the number of times individual sequences in a sample are replicated (coverage) for every NGS run. This results in the highest statistical power per dollar spent. In this webinar, Ibrahim Jivanjee discusses target capture methods and how IDT xGen™ target capture probes can be used to improve your sequencing data.
