Benefits of Targeted Resequencing

spacer
spacer    
spacer

Next-generation sequencing (NGS) is taking science further, far beyond the capabilities of qPCR and Sanger sequencing for somatic and germline variant detection. Learn how targeted NGS saves time, can help you gain greater insight in your studies, and be more confident in your results.

Articles

Targeted Resequencing Enables High-Throughput Detection of Somatic Mosaicism
Dr. Saumya Jamuar uses targeted resequencing on the MiSeq® System to identify rare mosaic mutations in neural malformations.

 

Seeking Dyslipidemia Variants with LipidSeq
Robarts Research Institute researchers design a custom targeted resequencing panel to profile lipid-related genetic variants.

 

Illumina in the News

Splatology and the MiniSeq System
Dr. Mattia Prosperi’s winning entry for the MiniSeq Scientific Challenge was truly imaginative. He and his team at the University of Florida sequence the DNA of dead insect remains found on his new MINI Cooper (the prize for winning the competition) to track the spread of mosquito-bourne viruses in Florida.

 

Bzzzzzzzz, it’s the MiniSeq System

The MiniSeq System will be the honeybee’s best friend, thanks to Dr. Hongmei Li-Byarlay who won 2nd place in the MiniSeq Scientific Challenge. She’ll be using the MiniSeq System to sequence Apis mellifera (European honeybee) to identify genes related to immune response and antiviral defense.



Identifying New Breast Cancer Variants
Finding gene mutations associated with a predisposition to breast cancer is important to Una McVeigh, 3rd place winner of the MiniSeq Scientific Challenge. She has a family history of early-onset breast cancer and will be using the MiniSeq System to advance her studies.
