Before You Start

Contact the GHTF to schedule a consultation about experimental design. Below are a number of commonly asked questions to help you begin planning your experiment. Please consult with us to let us know the time frame of your experiment and to give you an idea of our current workload. 

Suggestions for making next gen sequencing libraries

GHTF has experience with kits from Epicentre, BiooScientific, Kapa Biosciences, ZymoResearch, NuGen and Illumina.  Commercial kits are changing rapidly towards reducing the protocol time and allowing lower inputs of sample.  We are available to discuss the protocols that will be optimal for your experimental design and goals.

For whole exome libraries, the Agilent, Roche (Nimblegen) and Illumina TruSeq all work well.
