An Integrated Solution to Simplify Library Preparation and Multiplexing for NimbleGen Sequence Capture
Application Note May 07, 2013
Targeted sequencing is an important tool in analyzing disease or exome mutations. In this study, we describe how Bioo Scientific’s NEXTFlex™ DNA Pre-Capture Combo Library construction kits were used in conjunction with NimbleGen Sequence Capture technology to obtain high coverage comparative genomic data from a panel of human HapMap DNA samples. We identified 96-98% of known HapMap SNPs in the NimbleGen SeqCap EZ Exome v3.0 (64 Mb) and SeqCap EZ Design – Comprehensive Cancer Design (3.9 Mb) probes with a high percentage of reads mapping to the targeted regions. This study illustrates both the ability of Bioo Scientific’s NEXTFlex library construction kit to produce high-quality material for NGS, and the robust performance of the NimbleGen Sequence Capture technology.
