Integrated DNA Technologies (IDT) will host an informative webinar entitled ‘Custom, Affordable Gene Panels with Superior Coverage and Uniformity’ on February 18, 2015.
Presented by Rami Zahr, NGS Product Manager at IDT, the webinar will be available at 9am and 1pm Central Standard Time and explain how to design and optimize custom target capture panels at a much lower cost as well as enhance the performance of existing panels.
Off-the-shelf probe pools or panels often do not match a researcher’s experimental needs while custom designed probe pools or panels come at a high cost.
The IDT xGen® Predesigned Gene Capture Pools and Plates are built for highly uniform and specific target capture performance and webinar attendees will learn how they can be used to design and optimize new panels, as well as enhance existing panels, cost-effectively.
Attendees will also be shown how to design their own custom plates and, by mixing probes as needed, build panels to target specific CDS, UTR, introns or intergenic regions. The webinar aims to equip researchers using NGS target capture technologies with the ability to save costs and reduce waste in their work.
