Targeted Sequencing involves isolating genomic regions of interest from the whole genome and utilizes synthetic strands of DNA or RNA called probes, which assist in detecting the presence of a gene in a long DNA sequence. In order to address uniformity and coverage limitations associated with Targeted Sequencing, Celemics has developed and introduced a technology which incorporates rebalancing of probes following a pre-production pilot test.
