Analyzing the exome—focusing your NGS analysis with high performance target capture

As next generation sequencing has moved into the clinic, there is an increased demand for accuracy and reproducibility. Target enrichment is needed for applications where high read depth is critical, but some performance limitations, especially in GC-rich regions of the genome, have raised questions about the overall usefulness of target capture methods. In this webinar, Dr Kristina Giorda presents a method using individually synthesized and quality checked capture baits that performs well, even for GC-rich sequences, and delivers accurate coverage of the target space. Dr Giorda covers library preparation and target capture, and shares informative data generated using our xGen® Exome Research Panel.
