Whole Genome Phasing

Knowing which homologous chromosome has which sequence is essential to understanding a genome. Whole Genome Phasing is difficult with 2nd generation, short-read, DNA sequencing technology. Phasing provides haplotype information which is important for understanding complex traits and variant linkages. The TELL-Seq™ WGS DNA Library Prep kit helps with this by linking short-reads to larger fragments and therefore long-reads.
