Twist Bioscience Next Generation Sequencing Fixed Panels 

Mitochondrial Panel

The mitochondrial genome encodes factors critical to energy production, which directly affects the energy state of the cell, tissue, and human individual. Pathogenic mutations of Mitochondrial DNA (mtDNA) are often implicated in a group of complex human diseases which can be difficult to diagnose such as metabolic & neurologic disorders as well as cancer. Interrogation of the human mitochondrial genome by targeted Next Generation Sequencing (NGS) can help investigators shed light on the genetic mechanism behind mitochondrial disorders. 

The Twist Mitochondrial Panel is a fixed content panel designed to cover all 16,659 base pairs (bp) and 37 genes of the mitochondrial genome. This panel can be used as a standalone panel or as a spike-in with Twist’s Human Core Exome, Comprehensive Exome as well as Twist’s Custom Panels. Providing industry-leading coverage, uniformity, and flexibility, the Twist Mitochondrial Panel can help investigators enrich for, sequence, and analyze mtDNA variants contributing to disease including incidences of heteroplasmy.




Revolutionizing Target Enrichment

A critical component for successful targeted sequencing analysis is the quality of the capture reaction, which drives the uniformity of reads. A more uniform capture leads to more uniform sequencing, as indicated by lower fold80 base penalty scores. With higher uniformity, sequencing reads can effectively drive on target coverage, limiting wasted reads. High uniformity is the combined result of the probe design algorithm, silicon-based synthesis of dsDNA probes, and calibration processes that ensure uniform amplification, GC content, and enrichment performance across all targets. NGS-based quality control of all Twist Panels ensures that all probes are present at the correct concentrations and that the reproducibility of results is independent of our production processes.

Flexibility as a Standalone or as Added Content

The Twist Mitochondrial Panel can serve as added content to the Twist Human Core & Comprehensive Exome Panels, a Twist Custom Panel, or used as a standalone panel (figure 1)

Sequencing results with the Mitochondrial Panel as a spike-in with the Twist Human Core Exome at different concentrations demonstrate similar coverage indicative of uniformity irrespective of varying concentrations (figure 2).
