Using Sequencing Method Explorer to identify suitable NGS methods for research

The Sequencing Method Explorer tool, based on the latest scientific literature on cutting-edge NGS research, is designed to help researchers select the most suitable next-generation sequencing (NGS) method for their experiments. With this interactive tool, quickly and easily discover how leading researchers are finding answers to similar questions using innovative library prep techniques.
Use the Sequencing Method Explorer to:
  • Dive into the world’s largest collection of NGS sequencing methods
  • Explore over 200 different ways to prepare your samples for sequencing
  • Evaluate the pros and cons of each sequencing method
  • Review publication summaries and relevant references
To find the method and compatible kits that suit your project:
  1. 1.
    Navigate to the Sequencing Method Explorer and select the area of interest.
  2. 2.
    Choose from the selection of available analysis methods.
  3. 3.
    Select any method to display the schematic representation, a short description of the technique, pros and cons, and references.
  4. 4.
    The following options are available on the experimental research method page:
  • Associated Illumina library preparation kits for the technique of interest with hyperlinks to product information
  • Most recent references for the technique with hyperlinks to PubMed abstracts.
Note: At any time, select Reset or Back at the top of the page to restart the tool or to return to the previous page, respectively.
​​​​​​​Disclaimer: While the sequencing methods described in the Sequencing Method Explorer use Illumina kits or instruments, the methods were developed by the users, not by Illumina, so readers should refer to the original publications for detailed descriptions and protocols.
