NEBNext Direct employs a unique hybridization-based enrichment workflow that hybridizes baits directly to genomic DNA, without the need for upfront library preparation. The BRCA1/BRCA2 panel demonstrates extremely high specificity and unmatched coverage uniformity across a wide range of DNA inputs, allowing highly sensitive calling of germline and somatic variants while maximizing sequencer efficiency.
Target enrichment, coupled with next generation sequencing (NGS), enables high-throughput, deep sequencing of genomic regions of interest. NEBNext Direct is a novel, hybridization-based capture method offering significant advantages over traditional in-solution hybridization and multiplex PCR protocols.
In the NEBNext Direct target enrichment approach (Figure 1), enzymatically nicked or Covaris® sheared DNA is hybridized to biotinylated oligonucleotide baits that capture both strands of the target DNA and define the 3´ ends of the regions of interest. After hybridization, the bait-target hybrids are bound to streptavidin beads and any 3´ off-target sequence is removed enzymatically. This combination of hybridization with enzymatic removal of 3´ off-target sequence enables greater sequencing specificity relative to conventional hybridization-based enrichment methods. The trimmed targets are then converted into Illumina-compatible libraries that include a 12 bp unique molecular identifier (UMI) in the Illumina i5 index location and an 8 bp sample barcode in the Illumina i7 index location. The NEBNext Direct enrichment method can be performed within one to two days and is compatible with most automated liquid handling instruments.
The NEBNext Direct BRCA1/BRCA2 Panel is designed to enrich for the complete exonic content of the BRCA1 and BRCA2 genes. This kit contains the oligonucleotides, beads, enzymes and buffers required to convert the desired fragments into a sequence-ready library for next-generation sequencing on the Illumina platform and is designed for PE75 or PE150 sequencing.
