Amplicon Sequencing

Amplicon sequencing is a powerful technique that involves the amplification of target DNA sequences using polymerase chain reaction (PCR), followed by high-throughput sequencing to determine the sequence of the amplified DNA fragments. This method allows researchers to quickly and efficiently analyse specific regions of DNA from a complex mixture of genetic material, making it an invaluable tool in genomics research and various applications in science and medicine.

Advantages of Amplicon Sequencing

High Sensitivity: Amplicon sequencing can detect low-abundance variants in a complex mixture, making it ideal for analysing rare mutations or microbial species.

Specificity: By using targeted primers, researchers can focus on specific regions of interest, avoiding the need to sequence entire genomes.

Efficiency: The high-throughput nature of modern sequencing platforms allows for the processing of large numbers of samples in parallel, reducing time and cost.

Versatility: This method can be applied to a wide range of sample types and research questions, making it a versatile tool in genomics.
