Primer extension target enrichment

Researchers often enrich genomic regions of interest prior to next-generation sequencing (NGS) to reduce costs, decipher the roles of individual genes in complex diseases or investigate rare and low-frequency genetic variants. There are various techniques for doing this, including amplicon-based methods, hybridization-based methods and primer extension target enrichment (PETE).

Download this infographic to explore to various methods available for enriching genomic regions of interest.
