Application Note: Improving Sample Quality for Target Enrichment and NS with the Agilent High Sensitivity DNA Kit and the SureSelect Target Enrichment Platform
23 July 2013
Next-generation sequencing (NGS) has revolutionized the genetic landscape. It is a lengthy, labor-intensive process that yields results never before achieved. As a result, it is imperative that the quality of the DNA sample be evaluated from the start, as most NGS sample preparation protocols require PCR amplification to generate DNA libraries prior to sequencing. The likelihood of artifact generation could contribute to bias, affecting the potential results. This Application Note describes how the Agilent 2100 Bioanalyzer High Sensitivity DNA Kit can be used to provide quantitative and qualitative information about the DNA samples used in the Agilent SureSelect Target Enrichment System.
