This reagent is compatible with the Premium RRBS Kit and provides reagents for additional bisulfite conversion reactions.
Reduced Representation Bisulfite Sequencing provides a powerful method to efficiently analyze DNA methylation at the single nucleotide level without the higher costs associated with whole genome bisulfite sequencing. By cutting the genome using the restriction MspI enzyme (CCGG target sites) followed by size selection, DNA is enriched to represent CpG-rich regions (including CpG islands), in which DNA methylation marks are typically found. Thus, RRBS provides a cost-effective method for analyzing DNA methylation by reducing the part of the genome that actually needs to be sequenced and focusing on relevant CpG islands.
Diagenode® Premium RRBS technology: cost-effective DNA methylation mapping with superior coverage Anne-Clémence Veillard, Paul Datlinger, Miklos Laczik, Sharon Squazzo & Christoph Bock 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 availabl...
