Shared Designs

Overview

Target enrichment designs are developed independently, as well as in collaboration with Roche Sequencing Solutions scientists, by researchers around the world. With our dedicated shared designs page, we make it simple to access predesigned next-generation sequencing (NGS) panels.

Custom target enrichment designs shared by researchers across the world, built using our empirically optimized probe design algorithms, are continuously expanding and serve to suit the needs of demanding applications including oncology, human genetics, agriculture and other research applications.

If you would like to share your design on this page, please contact your local sales representative.

  • SeqCap EZ Design: Mouse Exome Design
  • Organism: Mouse
  • Genome Build: C57BL/6J, NCBI37, MM9
  • Design File: Mouse Exome Design (10.2 MB .zip)
  • Collaborator: Roche NimbleGen/Mouse Consortium
  • Specifications/Details: The coding sequence selected for the mouse exome probe pool design includes 203,225 exonic regions, including microRNAs, and collectively comprises over 54.3 Mb of target sequence (C57BL/6J, NCBI37/mm9). The design was based on a unified, Mouse Genome Database-curated gene set, consisting of non-redundant gene predictions from the National Center for Biotechnology Information (NCBI), Ensembl and The Vertebrate Genome Annotation (VEGA) database. To manage the size of the probe pool and to avoid non-uniquely mappable regions, we excluded olfactory receptors and pseudogenes from the target sequence. In cases where an exon contained both UTR and coding sequence, the UTR sequence was included in the design.

  • SeqCap EZ Design: Roslin Pig Exome Design Version 1
  • Organism: Sus scrofa (pig)
  • Genome Build: Sscrofa10.2 with additional sequences from GenBank in provided file
  • Design File: Design files are available upon request, please contact your local Roche office for design file information
  • Collaborator: Mick Watson, Edinburgh Genomics, The Roslin Institute, University of Edinburgh
  • Specifications/Details: The Ensembl gene annotations for the pig from release 71 were used as a starting point for the design, corresponding to assembly Sscrofa10.2 and the May 2012 genebuild (patched Oct 2012). The file Sus_scrofa.Sscrofa10.2.71.gtf.gz was downloaded from the Ensembl ftp site, and the lengths of non-overlapping genomic regions corresponding to exons of protein-coding genes were summed. Having found that the pig “exome” is smaller than that of human and mouse, ESTs from build 42 of UniGene Sus scrofa were mapped to the pig genome. The file Ssc.seq.uniq, representing the longest, best quality single sequence from each cluster, was downloaded from the NCBI FTP site, and used as input for NCBI BLASTN. High-scoring segment pairs (HSPs) at least 50 bp in length and >90% identical were chosen; HSPs that mapped more than 200 times in the genome filtered out; and overlapping HSPs merged. The resulting regions summed to 22.5Mb (mega-bases). These regions were merged with the Ensembl gene annotation using BEDTools. The final set of target genomic regions sums to 58.1 Mb.

The regions targeted by the panel aim to cover the functional methylome including:

  1. CpGs contained within low and unmethylated regions identified from large-scale whole-genome bisulfite sequencing data from human adipose tissue and associated with enhancers and promoters, respectively.
  2. Additional CpGs located within human adipocyte regulatory elements (H3K4me1 and H3K4me3 marking enhancers and promoters, respectively) profiled by the NIH Roadmap Epigenomics Mapping Consortium.
  3. All ~480,000 CpGs from the Illumina 450K array.

Of the ~3 million SNPs covered by the panel, the following variants are included:

  1. About 30,000 regions covering metabolic disease associated GWAS loci from the NHGRI GWAS catalog (9 January, 2014)
  2. About 250,000 highly-informative genome-wide tag SNPs found across diverse world populations from the Illumina HumanCore BeadChip.
