Even as sequencing costs decline, high-depth sequencing of the 7-17 Gbp wheat genome remains cost-prohibitive. With the myBaits Expert Wheat Exome Panel, Arbor Biosciences provides the wheat research and breeding community a simple tool that reduces focused sequencing of the wheat high-confidence exome by more than an order of magnitude compared to whole genome sequencing. Based on the IWGSC RefSeq v1.0 reference genome, with a total target space of >200Mb, this is the most up-to-date panel currently available on the market for complete wheat exome sequencing.

In this webinar, Dr. Jacob Enk (R&D Manager for NGS at Arbor Biosciences) will present the latest performance developments of the Wheat Exome Panel, including its utility for hexaploid, tetraploid, and diploid cultivars of wheat, as well as upcoming complementary tools for targeted sequencing of exome-wide promoters and new exons as they are continually updated in RefSeq.

The myBaits Expert Wheat Exome Panel is available for immediate shipment from Arbor Biosciences, and can also be purchased as part of full-service NGS packages for library preparation, enrichment, sequencing and bioinformatics analysis. IWGSC members receive special discounted rates on all Wheat Exome kits and services.
