Rareseq diagram

This technical figure was developed for Canopy Biosciences for their RareSeq™ technology – a sequencing system that vastly increased the sensitivity of genetic testing over traditional methods.

The figure demonstrates the entire process from the extraction of genomic DNA (gDNA) through to the final error corrections in the resulting products.

DNA mutations as rare as 1 in 10,000 can be examined which are increasingly becoming biologically and clinically relevant. One use of the RareSeq technology is for researchers targeting blood cancers who use it as a tool to study disease development, progression, and recurrence.
