Default Target resequencing Vs Amplicon sequencing

Hi there,

I am relatively new to the field of DNA sequencing, so asking a basic question here:

What is the difference between Target Resequencing and Amplicon Sequencing? I guess both are done to study targeted regions of genome and compared against some reference.

Amplicon resequencing is a kind of targeted resequencing

With amplicon sequencing, you do PCR with two primers flanking the region you care about. Presumably, you'd try to multiplex a bunch of them together per sample. Then you make a sequencing library of all those amplicons

The other common way to sequence a particular subset of a genome is to use a capture probe that binds to your sequence of interest, then you sequence that library. Large sets of probes designed to capture exonic sequence are commonly used.

Thanks for this question smriti, I'm interested in methods or kits that can be used with capture probes, or perhaps a good review article on the subject.
