About this book


High throughput sequencing (HTS) technologies have conquered the genomics and epigenomics worlds. The applications of HTS methods are wide, and can be used to sequence everything from whole or partial genomes, transcriptomes, non-coding RNAs, ribosome profiling, to single-cell sequencing. Having such diversity of alternatives, there is a demand for information by research scientists without experience in HTS that need to choose the most suitable  methodology or combination of platforms  and to define their experimental designs to achieve their specific objectives. Field Guidelines for Genetic Experimental Designs in High-Throughput Sequencing
