LINE-1 NGS Assay

Almost half of the human genome consists of different classes of repetitive elements such as DNA transposons and retrotransposons, which can be mobilized and inserted in various places in the genome.  LINE-1 Transposable Elements are very frequent and induce genomic rearrangements which are of particular interest when studying diseases in evolutionary context.
Nucleus Biotech provides an assay to detect and identify novel LINE-1-induced genomic variations in genomic DNA isolated from tumors, blood, cells or other samples. Only a few hundred nanograms of DNA are required.
