myBaits Custom — Predesigned Community Panels – Forensics and Ancient DNA

Many researchers working with specimens with highly challenging degraded and/or damaged target DNA content, often containing high amounts of non-degraded contaminating DNA, have relied on the high performance of myBaits Custom kits for enhancing the efficiency of their targeted genomics research.

With dedicated protocols appropriate for high-sensitivity and degraded DNA applications and extensive scientific support, myBaits has been the go-to choice for many researchers working with forensic, ancient, museum, herbarium, environmental, cell-free, and other samples that are sources of naturally and induced degraded DNAs of interest.



Overview

myBaits Custom Community Panels for Forensics & Ancient DNA

Listed below are a curated set of research panels that are of broad interest to the degraded DNA research community, and are available for quick delivery. Daicel Arbor Biosciences extends our thanks to the authors and designers of these panels for granting permission to include them on this list for accelerating discovery of the research community.

Note about attribution: If you use one of these Community Panels (in full or modified form) in your research, please ensure that you properly cite the appropriate publication(s) in any resulting manuscripts. Where applicable, we have indicated the most appropriate current reference(s) that should be cited for each panel.

Human

FORCE (V1) – FORensic Capture Enrichment

Enrichment panel targeting a focused set of SNP markers appropriate for common forensic applications, including >5.4K markers for analyses of extended kinship, ancestry, phenotype, and more. Tillmar et al (2021) designed and demonstrated this V1 (α) panel on a set of forensic and control samples. The panel provided statistically supported 1st-5th degree relationship predictions in forensic case samples.

Design ID: D10020FORCE1

FORCE (V2) – FORensic Capture Enrichment

Modified version of FORCE V1 panel. Coming soon; contact Arbor for more details.

Animal

PaleoChip Arctic-1.0 Animal - Mitochondrial genome panel for eDNA

Enrichment panel designed for capturing animal mitochondrial DNA from environmental ancient DNA (‘sedaDNA’) samples. Approximately 180 taxa were used for bait design, primarily megafauna of extinct/extant Quaternary animals. Murchie et al (2020) designed the panel and demonstrated its effectiveness on sedaDNA samples, pooled in a 5:3 ratio (Animal:Plant; total baits/rxn = 200ng) with the separate “Plant” PaleoChip Arctic-1.0″ baitset, which is also available as a Community Panel from Daicel Arbor Biosciences.

Optimizing extraction and targeted capture of ancient environmental DNA for reconstructing past environments using the PalaeoChip Arctic-1.0 bait-set. Quaternary Research, 99:305–328.

Design ID: D10185eANML

MegaMito - Mitochondrial genome panel for eDNA

Enrichment panel designed for full mitochondrial DNA (mtDNA) genome capture from ancient DNA samples. First published and demonstrated effective in Kirillova et al (2017). Baits designed from 75 mammalian target sequences to work even for highly degraded aDNA target molecules. Target sequences include species from Artiodactyla, Carnivora, Eulipotyphla, Lagomorpha, Perissodactyla, Pholidota, Primates, Proboscidea, Rodentia, Tubulidentata, and Xenarthra.

Discovery of the skull of Stephanorhinus kirchbergensis (Jäger, 1839) above the Arctic Circle. Quaternary Research, 88:537–550.

Plant

PaleoChip Arctic-1.0 Plant - Chloroplast barcoding loci panel (trnL, rbcL, matK) for eDNA

Enrichment panel designed for capturing plant chloroplast DNA from environmental ancient DNA (‘sedaDNA’) samples. >2K high-latitude plant taxa were covered by the bait design, targeting the trnL, matK, and rbcL loci that are commonly used in eDNA barcoding research. Murchie et al (2020) designed the panel and demonstrated its effectiveness on sedaDNA samples, pooled in a 3:5 ratio (Plant:Animal; total baits/rxn = 200ng) with the separate “Animal” PaleoChip Arctic-1.0″ baitset, which is also available as a Community Panel from Daicel Arbor Biosciences.
