A Primer on NGS Adapters: Structural Elements, Key Functions and Workflow Differences
Next-generation sequencing (NGS) adapters are DNA structures added to a sample library, of random, similarly-sized DNA inserts during ligation-based NGS library construction.
This primer helps you narrow in on which adapter is best for your experiment by outlining the structural components of adapters, the functions and benefits conferred by these structures, the common terms used to name these structures, as well as key workflow differences.
