Abstract

Targeted next-generation sequencing is becoming a common tool in the molecular diagnostic laboratory. However, currently available methods to enrich for regions of interest in the DNA sequence suffer from drawbacks such as high cost, complex protocols, lack of clinical-level accuracy and uneven target coverage. A target-enrichment approach using complementary long padlock probes described in a recent article significantly improves on previous methods in most of these areas.
