  • Library QC and Troubleshooting with the BioAnalyzer and Fragment Analyzer

    Recorded Webinar (October 2021) | Does my library look good to sequence? What’s that peak? This webinar will address how to use the Agilent BioAnalyzer to check library quality prior to sequencing, and troubleshoot sample preparation. This webinar is geared toward new and intermediate users, and will cover how to identify features of an ideal library trace, recognize potential issues, and prevent potential issues.


  • Nextera XT: Sample Preparation and Usage

    Recorded Webinar (April 2017) | Join Illumina Technical Support for a presentation and discussion on the Nextera XT sample preparation process. This session reviews the following topics: Nextera XT protocol, best practices for critical steps, and a comparison of the Nextera XT kit to the Nextera DNA kit, focusing on the applications recommended with each kit.  


  • Metagenomics Part I: Introduction to Library Preparation and Sequencing (Portuguese)

    Upcoming Webinar | Este webinar será a primeira parte de uma série de 2 webinars sobre Metagenômica. O time de Suporte Técnico da Illumina convida você a se juntar a nós para discutir o fluxo de trabalho para um projeto de sequenciamento de metagenômica. Este webinar é ideal para usuários novos e intermediários em relação à tecnologia illumina de sequenciamento,  que tenham interesse em metagenômica. Durante essa primeira parte, discutiremos sobre metagenômica de alvos específicos e sequenciamento metagenômico total (shotgun), incluindo os seguintes tópicos: uma visão geral de metagenômica, introdução a abordagens experimentais, estratégias de preparo de biblioteca e suas considerações, opções de sequenciamento, avaliação das métricas da corrida, e uma visão geral da análise de dados.
