Precision ID Identity Panel (Applied Biosystems™)

The Applied Biosystems Precision ID Identity Panel is one of the first next-generation sequencing (NGS) solutions for human identification that uniquely identifies pristine or degraded samples. The multiplexed panel of SNPs provides discrimination of individuals similar to STR genotype match probabilities used by forensic analysts (between 1x10-31 and 6x10-35).

High discrimination power is achieved by using 34 upper Y-Clade SNPs and 90 autosomal SNPs that have high heterozygosity and low fixation index (Fst) as described in publications by Dr. Kenneth Kidd from Yale University and the SNPForID Consortium (1-3). The panel design has been optimized for use with degraded or challenging forensic samples using only 1 ng of starting DNA input, although acceptable performance has been observed with sub-nanogram input quantities as low as 100 pg. The autosomal markers have an average amplicon length of 132 nucleotides and the Y-markers are 141 nucleotides in length on average. 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.

Simplicity
• Small amplicons enable better recovery with degraded samples
• As little as 100 pg of input
• Automated library and template preparation using the Ion Chef System

Scalability
• Multiple chip formats to meet a range of sample throughput requirements
• Ability to multiplex up to 384 samples*

Speed
• 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*

NOTE: The Precision ID Identity Panel provides sufficient material to perform 96 reactions using the manual Precision ID Library kit (Cat. No. A26435) or 48 reactions using the automated Precision ID DL8 Library Kit (Cat. No. A33212).

Wider dynamic range for enhanced performance
With a wider dynamic range and improved gene detection compared to conventional microarray analysis, the Ion AmpliSeq Transcriptome™ Human Gene Expression Kit provides a clear solution to researchers needing enhanced performance for their gene expression needs. A simple workflow allows for sample-to-gene quantitation in less than 2 days, helping to reduce workload and increase throughput.

Straightforward library preparation and multiplex sequencing
Starting with as little as 10 ng of total RNA, libraries can be prepared in approximately 7 hours with only one hour of hands-on time. Total RNA is first processed with the included SuperScript® VILO™ cDNA Synthesis kit, and the resulting cDNA is amplified using Ion AmpliSeq™ technology to accurately maintain expression levels of all genes.

The resulting libraries are ready for downstream template preparation using the Ion OneTouch™ 2 System or Ion Chef™ System and sequencing on the Ion Proton™ sequencing system. Libraries can be barcoded for multiplexing, allowing for flexibility, helping to reduce cost, and increase throughput, with the recommended 8 libraries per Ion PI™ chip. Other multiplexing options are also possible, depending on the experimental design and desired level of sensitivity.

Automatic data analysis with Torrent Suite™ plug-in
Using the complementary analysis plug-in available with Torrent Suite™ software, gene quantitation information is automatically compiled, minimizing the requirement for costly computational resources and bioinformatics expertise to process raw sequencing data into meaningful information. An easy to interpret, highly portable table is produced containing all genes interrogated and their respective expression levels, output that may be used with a variety of existing software applications for downstream analysis of microarray or next-generation sequencing data.

BRCA1 and BRCA2 genes are tumor suppressor genes that code for proteins that are vital components of the homologous recombination pathway of DNA damage repair. BRCA mutations resulting in the deficiency of either gene have been shown to result in inefficient activation of this function and are linked to hereditary predisposition to cancer. Errors in the coding sequence of BRCA genes have been detected in germline and somatic mutations and also occur in tumor samples.
