Studies in genomics, transcriptomics, and epigenomics have shaped our
understanding of cellular complexity and heterogeneity. Technological
advances are now enabling cost-efficient, high-throughput analysis of
biological molecules, and have offered researchers an opportunity to
combine the interrogation of DNA, RNA, and epigenome in order to
better understand genotype-phenotype interactions.
In this seminar, we will review recent research that incorporates
multi-omic approaches and introduce the tools that enabled this
research, which include sequencing and array-based technologies, and
library prep solutions for both bulk and single-cell analysis.
Information on core services will be provided by Christina Harrington.

Library preparation for Illumina sequencing consists of DNA
fragmentation and adapter-tagging. DNA fragmentation can be achieved
using enzymatic or mechanical methods. Enzymatic methods are typically
more convenient but can create challenges around sensitivity to DNA
quantitation, and/or require extensive optimization to achieve
Nextera Flex is a novel bead-linked-transposome technology, which
addresses these shortcomings whilst retaining the convenience of
enzymatic fragmentation. Nextera Flex is compatible with a wide range
of DNA inputs, providing new levels of robustness while minimizing the
requirement for quantitation post-library prep for an input range of
100-500ng for whole genome sequencing and 50-1000ng for targeted
enrichment. In addition, the underlying technology will normalize the
libraries to give a consistent yield and insert size from a range of
DNA inputs. When paired with the Nextera Flex lysis kit, customers can
employ a quantification-free workflow to enable normalized library
creation from raw samples such as blood and saliva. This new
technology offers customers a novel, easy-to-use, fast, and simple
solution for library preparation.
