Multiplexing with ion torrent?
I am looking for a protocol or personal experience in doing multiplexing with ion torrent. Has anybody done this?
The app note is not very informative

What sort of samples are you trying to multiplex? It makes a big difference.

For amplicons, one route is to just design appropriate tags (ones designed for the 454 will work) into your primers.

For fragment libraries, NuGen has a kit and I believe Ion has their own similar kits.

Thanks for the info. I was interested in both amplicons and also bacterial whole genome.
I wanted to see if anyone has experience with the ion barcode kits. I can't find much information on them.

Have you seen the Ion Express gDNA and Amplicon Library preparation guide posted on the Ion Community?
