Low-coverage whole genome sequencing (lcWGS) is a cost-effective approach to genotyping. This “low pass” genome sequencing is a useful tool in agricultural population studies, as it allows for the generation of genomic information on a large scale, which can be used for classification purposes.
In this poster, we demonstrate the ability to generate highly multiplexed pools of lcWGS libraries from Cannabis sativa using an automation workflow on a Sciclone G3 NGSx Workstation liquid handling workstation from PerkinElmer, Inc. using seqWell’s purePlex™ library preparation technology for sequencing on an Illumina NovaSeq instrument.

In the purePlex™ DNA library preparation workflow, auto-normalization is achieved through sequential transposition events of full-length indexed adapters in the presence of a novel normalization reagent. This approach allows incorporation of unique dual indexing and permits pooling of samples immediately following the tagging steps such that purification and amplification of fragments occur after pooling, reducing the QC and labor costs over traditional UDI workflows.
