Effects of sample age on data quality from targeted sequencing of museum specimens: what are we capturing in time?

McGaughran, Angela


Background: Next generation sequencing (NGS) can recover DNA data from valuable extant and extinct museum specimens. However, archived or preserved DNA is difficult to sequence because of its fragmented, damaged nature, such that the most successful NGS methods for preserved specimens remain sub-optimal. Improving wetlab protocols and comprehensively determining the effects of sample age on NGS library quality are therefore of vital importance. Here, I examine the relationship between sample...[Show more]
