  • Enrichment Data Analysis: Introduction

    Recorded Webinar (September 2020) | Illumina offers several enrichment-based library prep kits for targeted resequencing. This webinar will deconstruct enrichment data analysis for beginners. We will focus on the following topics: Illumina Enrichment analysis options, enrichment analysis workflow, enrichment analysis output files, and what to look for when assessing enrichment output data.

  • Illumina DNA Prep with Enrichment (formerly Nextera DNA Flex for Enrichment): Introduction

    Recorded Webinar (August 2020) | Join us to learn more about our newest and most efficient enrichment workflow – Illumina DNA Prep with Enrichment, formerly known as Nextera Flex for Enrichment. This webinar is for users that are interested in targeted sequencing using enrichment with fixed and custom gene panels, as well as for current users of Illumina enrichment workflows to learn and compare the benefits Illumina DNA Prep with Enrichment offers. We discuss the improved enrichment workflow used in Illumina DNA Prep with Enrichment, the unique features of Illumina DNA Prep with Enrichment, and useful tips for a successful library prep.  

    CORRECTION: There is an update for low minor allele frequency (somatic variant) detection. Illumina has validated only 1-plex pooling for somatic variant detection. If you would like to pool above 1-plex for this application, you will need to validate the performance of higher plexity pooling.

  • Illumina DNA Prep with Enrichment – Tagmentation: Best Practices and Troubleshooting

    Illumina Field Applications Scientists review individual best practices and troubleshooting for the Illumina DNA Prep with Enrichment – Tagmentation protocol (formerly known as Nextera Flex for Enrichment).
