HiFi Target Enrichment
Combine Twist Bioscience target enrichment with PacBio long and accurate HiFi reads to efficiently sequence your priority genomic regions at scale. Sequence enriched regions with a protocol optimized for HiFi reads to get comprehensive detection of single nucleotide variants, structural variants, and indels with haplotype resolution. HiFi target enrichment can deliver accurate alleles for complex gene families such as immune genes (e.g., HLA) and pharmacogenes (e.g., CYP2D6).
HiFi target enrichment enables you to sequence at scale with ready-made Twist Alliance Panels or custom designs. Learn more about Twist and plan your project with this app brief.
HiFi amplicon sequencing
Enjoy a simplified workflow with one primer pair and one amplicon pool, easy assay optimization, long-range phasing, and simplified data analysis. Target medically relevant, individual genes or small gene panels using a PCR-based approach. If you can amplify it, HiFi sequencing can span your amplicon in a single read, giving unambiguous haplotype resolution through direct phasing. HiFi amplicon sequencing allows you to replace multiple assays with one fast, easy, scalable, and economical workflow.
