Next-generation sample preparation for liquid biopsy research

The use of next-generation sequencing (NGS) continues to grow due to several factors. Traditional Sanger sequencing performs a single read for each reaction, while NGS generates millions of sequencing reads simultaneously.  Although the accuracy of a single NGS sequence is lower, multiple reads are generated and aligned for a single run, generating an accurate consensus… Read article →

Advances in sequencing single cells – a PCR-free method for NGS RNA library construction

In our last post, “How can you construct NGS DNA libraries from a single cell in just one day?”, we discussed how to prepare a DNA NGS library from a single cell. What are the differences when preparing libraries for RNA-seq? We know that a number of conventional whole transcriptome amplification methods already overcome limited RNA availability,… Read article →
