Targeted gene panels for next generation sequencing technologies (NGS) are useful tools to analyse specific mutations in a given DNA sample. Focused panels contain only a select set of genes or gene regions allowing a cost-effective approach to focus your research.

NGS uses parallel short-read DNA sequencing, genome alignment and assembly methods to digitally and rapidly analyse genomic sequence information. This fast-sequencing approach allows researchers to study the genetic causes of rare diseases and cancers, or make genome-level comparative analysis.

The two most common methods for library preparation are amplicon sequencing and hybridisation capture

With the hybridisation method DNA is fragmented and tagged with appropriate barcodes and then subsequently amplified. Hybridisation is a more robust technique with the advantage of providing better uniformity of coverage, fewer false positives, and superior variant detection due to fewer PCR cycles.

The amplicon-based library preparation method creates a targeted sequencing library from your DNA sample using two basic steps: 1) capture and amplification of the targeted sequences of interest to yield a pool of appropriately sized fragments, 2) addition of sequencing adapters that will later interact with the NGS platform of choice.

Probes used in the capture step of the library preparation are designed based on the targeted sequences of interest. 

The adapter ligation step uniquely tags the DNA fragments with specific oligonucleotide sequences that will interact with the surface of a sequencing flow cell. If multiple samples are to be sequenced in a single sequencing run, a unique identifier, or barcode, is additionally ligated to the targeted fragments. The resulting completed libraries can be pooled into a single sequencing run that is then “demultiplexed” during data analysis.
