myBaits Expert — Predesigned Panels
myBaits Expert – Plant – Angiosperms-353
This new panel enriches 100's of single-copy genes orthologous across all angiosperms (flowering plants).

Combining the flexible hybridization power of in-solution target capture with an expertly selected set of orthologous locus sequences, this new probe set has been demonstrated to enrich hundreds of putatively single-copy protein-coding genes across a broad range of angiosperms (flowering plants). Probes were designed from 353 loci, each with 5-15 representative sequences from across all angiosperms which were selected using a novel “k-medoids clustering approach” to maximize taxonomic breadth of the design (Johnson, Pokorny, Dodsworth et al 2018, Systematic Biology).

These probes are broadly applicable for phylogenetic research across all flowering plants, and the kit is available from Daicel Arbor Biosciences as an in-stock catalog kit available for immediate shipment at a low per-reaction cost. As with all myBaits kits, the Angiosperms353 panel is provided as a complete solution target capture kit, including buffers, blockers, and baits, along with an easy-to-use protocol. Or if you would prefer to outsource the work, our myReads NGS service expert scientists are available to perform library preparation, target capture, and sequencing for your entire project.

  • Predesigned Panel – Designed by expert plant geneticists
  • Proven results – Demonstrated utility across broad taxonomic range
  • Freely accessible pipelines – Simple, user-friendly data analysis
  • Cost-effective – Use one bait set across multiple distantly-related taxa

Colors indicate the percentage of the target length (calculated by the mean length of all k-medoid transcripts for each gene) recovered.” (pg 19, Johnson, Pokorny, Dodsworth et al 2019, Syst Bio). Image is Figure 3 from Johnson, Pokorny, Dodsworth et al 2019, Syst Biol.

Fig 2.Total Length of Sequence Recovery for Both Coding and Non-coding Regions Across 353 Loci for 42 Angiosperm Species. Reads were mapped back to either coding sequence (yellow) or coding sequence plus flanking non-coding (i.e. intron) sequence (purple)… The total length of coding sequence targeted was 260,802 bp. The median recovery of coding sequence was 137,046 bp and the median amount of non-coding sequence recovered was 216,816 bp (with at least 8x depth of coverage).” (pg 21, Johnson, Pokorny, Dodsworth et al 2019, Syst Bio).
