Solving the FFPE Problem: Scientists Coax High-Quality Results from Low-Quality Samples

NGS expert Brian Walker is helping to bring personalized treatment to cancer patients. Along the way, he built a pipeline using library prep kits from Kapa Biosystems to generate high-quality sequencing results from even the most degraded FFPE samples. For scientists trying to usher genomics... More

Improved RNA-Seq Results: Learn How at Our Webinar on More Efficient Ribodepletion and Library Construction

For the best RNA sequencing results, efficient removal of ribosomal RNA is imperative since rRNA accounts for the vast majority of total RNA but contributes minimally to understanding gene expression. Overcoming this challenge is the subject of our next webinar: “Improved sequencing and transcript detection... More
