Researchers David Saul and Jo Stanton discuss a novel method that enables extraction of sequencing-ready DNA from bacteria in a single tube. They highlight the quality of DNA extracted using the rapid PDQeX protocol compared to competing methodologies. The particular advantages to using this enzyme-driven chemistry for sequencing projects are also discussed. Finally, the speakers share insights on compatibility of the PDQeX system with emerging sequencing technologies.
