The Applied Biosystems™ Precision ID Ancestry Panel includes 165 autosomal markers (SNPs) that can provide biogeographic ancestry information to guide your investigative process. Fifty-five of these markers were selected based on a publication by Dr. Kenneth Kidd from Yale University [1], and 123 markers were selected based on a publication by Dr. Michael Seldin from the University of California Davis [2]. With small amplicon sizes (<130 bp), this panel is also optimized for degraded DNA samples. Using a small sample input of as little as 1 ng of DNA, you can go from sample extraction to genotypes in less than a two days using the Precision ID NGS System and HID SNP Genotyper plug-in for analysis.

• Small amplicons enable better recovery with degraded samples
• As little as 1 ng of input
• Automated library and template preparation using the Ion Chef™ System

• Multiple chip formats to meet a range of sample throughput requirements
• Ability to multiplex up to 192 samples*

• Less than 45 minutes of hands-on time for a DNA-to-data targeted sequencing workflow*
• Total sample-to-data time of less than 2 days*

* Using the Applied Biosystems Precision ID NGS System for Human Identification
