Ion Torrent Sequencing

  1. 1. Next Generation Sequencing Ion Torrent Method
  2. 2. Overview • Similar idea as SMRT • Detects the chemiluminescence given off when a proton (H+) is released • Use ion chip
  3. 3. Library Construction • If RNA, converted into cDNA • DNA fragmentation • Adapter ligated to DNA • Denaturation Image provided by
  4. 4. Template Prep/ePCR Amplification • Fragments are attached to beads • ePCR
  5. 5. Sequencing • Based on standard pyrosequencing • Measures light from chemiliuminescent reagents by measuring direct release of H+ (protons) from the sequencing reaction
  6. 6. Data Analysis • Output  FASTQ Image provided by
