How fast is your amplicon library prep?

Next-generation sequencing (NGS) technology has fundamentally changed genomic research and now is entering the realm of routine diagnostics. Targeted resequencing, or amplicon sequencing, where selected regions of the genome are enriched prior to library preparation by highly multiplexed PCR, allows researchers to focus sequencing power on specific genes or regions of interest, and is often… Read article →

Webinar takeaways – “Accurate DNA Methylation Analysis by Successful Bisulfite Conversion”

DNA methylation is widely recognized as a major player regulating normal gene expression and facilitating chromatin organization within cells. Research into abnormal DNA methylation that leads to human diseases like cancer could therefore provide valuable insights for disease development diagnosis and potential therapies. DNA is made up of 4 nucleotides – cytosine, guanine, thymine and… Read article →


Back to the future – 30 years of plasmid purification

What would happen if we traveled 30 years back in a QIAGEN time machine? In 1986, it all started with the first QIAGEN kit for plasmid purification, giving scientists all over the world a revolutionary alternative to anion-exchange and phenol chloroform extraction. But back then, would we have believed that plasmid purification kits would become… Read article →
