Detection of somatic variants in solid tumors: AmpliSeq™ for Illumina Cancer Hotspot Panel v2* library preparation and data analysis workflow

The AmpliSeq for Illumina Cancer Hotspot Panel v2 is a targeted resequencing assay for detecting somatic mutations across the hotspot regions of 50 genes with known associations to cancer, as identified in the Catalogue of Somatic Mutations in Cancer (COSMIC) database. The result is an accurate, cost-effective solution that enables researchers to profile solid tumors. This 3 day training course will cover full sample preparation using commercial reference standards and samples provided by trainees, introduction to the iSeq100* instrument, sequencing set-up and data analysis.

Target audience: Lab based researchers who are looking to quickly and successfully implement this protocol. No previous knowledge of NGS required.

Objectives: At the end of the training you will:

  • Perform full AmpliSeq for Illumina Cancer Hotspot Panel v2 protocol
  • Learn optimal experimental design for this workflow
  • Know how to start and monitor a run on iSeq100* sequencer
  • Be familiar with local and cloud based analysis options
  • Learn about variant filtering and annotation using BaseSpace™ Variant Interpreter*
