TGen Team Tests Barcodes for Multiplexed Targeted Resequencing Studies in Humans | GenomeWeb
Researchers at the Translational Genomics Research Institute have devised a barcoding method for sequencing multiple samples in parallel on Illumina’s Genome Analyzer, and have tested it by resequencing several regions in 46 HapMap individuals.
The scientists plan to apply the method in targeted resequencing studies, for example in follow-up projects to genome-wide association studies. Coupled with genome capture or partitioning methods, it could be used to sequence hundreds of samples in parallel, they said.
