Comparing mtDNA Analysis Options

Choosing the right technology and kit for you

Back to Webinars

There are many considerations when analyzing mitochondrial DNA— from Sanger sequencing to next-generation sequencing, control region to whole genome analysis, from one supplier to another. In this webinar, Ryan Gutierrez, doctoral student at Sam Houston State University, will provide insight on some different options for mtDNA analysis, including:

  • A workflow comparison of the ForenSeq mtDNA Control Region Kit and the ForenSeq mtDNA Whole Genome Kit
  • A performance comparison of the ForenSeq and Promega mtDNA control region kits
  • Benefits of sequencing the whole mtGenome, including examples of practical application
