Hebert, P.D.N., Prosser, S, and deWaard, J.R. Method to Amplify DNA Sequences from Degraded Sources. International Patent Application (PCT/CA2016/050970). Filed August 18, 2016. [patent]

This provisional patent describes a sophisticated next generation sequencing (NGS) protocol that involves a dual, nested and unbiased PCR approach to co-amplify several small overlapping fragments, followed my massive multiplexing of the tagged amplicons. The target of multiplexing 95 century old specimens on a single NGS run was achieved, with near-perfect sequence recovery, and the cost of analyzing each type specimen was lowered to roughly $5 USD.
