Default SNPsaurus launches nextRAD services

SNPsaurus announces launch of nextRAD genotyping
Enables genotyping by sequencing on low input samples

May 15, 2013. SNPsaurus, a genomic services company based in Eugene, Oregon, today announced the launch of their nextRAD genotyping platform. The nextRAD (Nextera-tagmented reductively-amplified DNA) marker platform is designed for genotyping large populations and for samples with limited availability of genomic DNA.

“The distinguishing feature of nextRAD compared to other genotyping-by-sequencing methods is that it does not use restriction enzymes to reduce the complexity of the genome.” said SNPsaurus founder Eric Johnson. “This allows us to make high quality sequencing libraries that sample thousands to hundreds of thousands of loci across a genome from less than 10 ng total genomic DNA.”

Director of Research Paul Etter said, “We tried to design nextRAD for the rapidly increasing capabilities of next-generation sequencers. It has the throughput for genotyping thousands of samples because of the streamlined protocol and the ability to multiplex hundreds of samples in a lane of a sequencer.”

SNPsaurus also unveiled their nextRAD Project Explorer, at, an online tool for exploring the parameters of a genotyping project, from low-coverage mapping of recombinant inbred lines to high-coverage genotyping for creating genetic maps, and getting a project price estimate.

SNPsaurus has licensed nextRAD technology from the University of Oregon.

I've added a blog post about how researchers are finding uses for low-depth sequencing, with a nice paper from Beth Shapiro's group about polar bears as an example.

How low can you go?
