Complete NGS targeted sequencing from sample to variant interpretation - 2-part series

The QIAseq Targeted Panels have allowed scientists to obtain accurate quantitative data and call low-frequency variants due to the novel unique molecular index (UMI) technology. This webinar begins with key points on sample extraction and purification. Focus will also be placed on library generation, key points and tips for the wet-bench workflow, and quality check procedures to ensure that the library is suitable for sequencing. Example data will be shared to illustrate ideal libraries as well as troubleshooting results where the libraries were less than ideal for sequencing.

Jonathan M. Shaffer
Dr. Shaffer joined QIAGEN in 2009 and has since worked with various technology development groups, the most recent being miRNA technologies. He received his Ph.D. in biochemistry and molecular genetics from the University of Pittsburgh School of Medicine in 2008 where his research focused on determining the mechanisms that regulate non-receptor tyrosine kinase expression and activity. Dr. Shaffer did his postdoctoral training at SABiosciences Corporation, now part of QIAGEN. Currently, Dr. Shaffer is a Senior Scientist in Product Development at QIAGEN.
