Improved Library Preparation Workflows for Next Generation Sequencing
SAN DIEGO, March 1, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- TriLink BioTechnologies, Inc. (TriLink, trilinkbiotech.com) was recently awarded a Phase I SBIR Grant of approximately $130,000 by the National Institutes of Health to develop an approach to RNA sample preparation for Next Generation Sequencing (NGS) using TriLink's expertise in nucleic acid chemistry. This is the sixth Phase I grant TriLink has been awarded and it will be funded through July 2013. TriLink plans to investigate methods to reduce formation of adapter dimers during RNA sample preparation which will remove the need for gel purification prior to sequencing.
"Improving the process of RNA sample preparation for next generation sequencing will increase the accessibility of this valuable tool," commented Richard Hogrefe, CEO of TriLink. "We are pleased to utilize our strengths in the modification of nucleic acids to support the evolution of this technology."
"Next generation sequencing is becoming the mainstay of genomics research," said Dr. Natasha Paul, Principal Investigator on the grant. "We are pleased to contribute to this growing field streamline NGS sample preparation workflows for small RNA deep sequencing."
