Targeted DNA sequencing enables researchers to focus on a select set of genes or relevant gene regions, enabling cost-effective and systematic variant detection. Next-generation sequencing (NGS) can be used to sequence many samples concurrently, increasing both the number of genes covered and the confidence in covering relevant genes.
Small genome sequencing provides comprehensive analysis of microbial or viral genomes for public health, epidemiology, and disease studies. Without requiring bacterial culture, researchers can sequence thousands of small organisms in parallel.
Unlike traditional approaches, small genome sequencing studies using NGS do not rely on labor-intensive cloning steps. Small genome DNA libraries can be prepared, sequenced, and analyzed in as little as 2 days. Sequence up to 50 small genomes per MiniSeq run.
