Agilent community designs offer NGS designs targeting many pathogens, including bacteria and viruses.
The designs are for deep sequencing of pathogen genomes, and they enable target enrichment of pathogen sequences from human samples for infectious disease research.
These designs were developed by Agilent’s customers with considerable expertise in pathogen studies and infectious disease research.
They are now available to Agilent customers as catalog made-to-order products.
Research group led by Prof. Judith Breuer from University College London (UCL) has pioneered targeted virus genome sequencing using Agilent SureSelect target enrichment technology.
SureSelect Oligo probes are designed against specific viruses so viral genome can be enriched directly from RNA extracted clinical samples for sequencing.
