UCE Protocols

On-bead Illumina Libraries

This was a big deal at the time, but you can now do even better with Kapa Hyper Prep Kits.



UCE Sequence Capture with Universal Blockers

Again, this was helpful at the time, but you can now do better by using the latest MYbaits-manual from Arbor Biosciences (formerly Mycroarray).

Post-enrichment limited cycle PCR

This can be good to have, but you can simply use the latest MYbaits-manual from Arbor Biosciences (formerly Mycroarray).



Validations of enrichments via qPCR

This is a reasonable way to test if new baits are doing what you want before you spend a lot on sequencing. However, now that we have so many iTru primers, it will usually be cheaper and better to accomplish this task via low depth sequencing.
