Webinar roundup: From targeted sequencing to multimodal sequencing
If you’re looking for novel or known variants associated with cancer, targeted sequencing is an efficient method of choice. By focusing on specific genomic regions of interest vs. the entire genome, you can increase...
Q&A with the methylation analysis experts: your epigenomic questions answered
November 3, 2020
In a recent webinar, “Unlock liquid biopsy samples with NGS-based methylation detection from 10 ng DNA”, we discussed how to take your targeted methylation analysis to the next level using an NGS-based approach. The audience had some insightful questions!
Automate and accelerate: Focus on insights, not library prep
June 5, 2019
The faster you can prepare high-quality NGS libraries, the faster you can proceed with sequencing your sample and uncovering insights that accelerate your understanding of its underlying biology. But what if you have thousands of samples? Issues...
RNA-seq Week 2018 – valuable insights and Q&A from the webinar series
January 23, 2019
Life science research is constantly on the edge of new technology developments. This trend is especially apparent in advanced transcriptomics and gene expression research. In December 2018, we hosted “RNA-seq Week”, where we…
Find every variant that matters – head-to-head comparison of targeted sequencing methods
January 22, 2019
In precision medicine, only a handful of DNA variants are going to be relevant for a specific disease or a targeted treatment. Identifying these variants can be difficult, depending on the DNA sample, the specific gene or region and the methodology...
Having issues with primer dropouts in your 2-primer amplicon-based panel? You should!
June 7, 2018
Don’t you hate seeing coverage gaps in your NGS panel after you’ve run your precious samples? Especially when the reason for the gap is as simple as primer dropouts? What’s even worse is that filling this gap might require a complete re-design of...
Don’t settle for an amplicon variant assay – build an amplicon sequencing assay
June 5, 2018
There is a misconception out there that amplicon sequencing is beneficial only if you are interested in hotspots. Not true! Amplicon sequencing is beneficial regardless of the regions you are interested in, whether these are hotspots or…
QIAseq and Single Primer Extension Chemistry: Redefining Amplicon-Based NGS
January 29, 2018
Targeted NGS has been widely used for the detection and confirmation of genetic changes, yet there are technical challenges that undermine precise quantification and confound analyses. Multiplex PCR and nested PCR-based library...
