Reduced representation bisulfite sequencing (RRBS) enables genome-scale DNA methylation analysis in any vertebrate species. The assay benefits from the practical advantages of bisulfite sequencing while avoiding the cost of whole-genome sequencing. The Diagenode Premium RRBS kit makes this technology widely available and provides high coverage (up to 4 million CpGs in human samples). Multiplexing prior to bisulfite conversion allows processing of 96 samples per experiment, enabling studies of large cohorts.
