MYTObaits: Capture Kits for Mitochondrial DNA

We are pleased to announce our MYTObaits, a new product line of predesigned, modular mitochondrial baitsets. You can mix-and-match any combination of pre-designed, 6-reaction baitset modules to fill your chosen kit size. For example, you can purchase a 24 reaction size kit (4x 6-reaction modules), and choose 2 modules of human baits, 1 module of dog baits, and 1 module of cow baits. These modules can be used separately, or pooled together to make a custom combo baitset.

All MYTObaits kits use 80mer baits with at least 4x tiling density (75% overlap between neighboring probes), supplied at 30ng/µl. These parameters are appropriate for enriching mitochondrial DNA for efficient high-throughput sequencing from any type of specimen, whether fresh/modern, agricultural, environmental, forensic, ancient, or archival material.

If you wish to outsource part or all of your NGS project, we also offer library prep, capture, and sequencing services for both modern & degraded specimens.

Enrichment Protocol

MYTObaits captures can follow the standard MYbaits protocol for target capture. If you are working with degraded/rare targets - such as museum or ancient DNA specimens - you should review the suggested protcol modifications outlined in the manual, as well as the tips in Project Planning and Frequently Asked Questions. And as always, we are available to provide NGS technical advice and assistance, so please contact us with details about your project plans.

You can also purchase one or more MYTObaits mitochondrial modules for supplementing your own MYbaits custom kit (such as baitsets targeting nuclear or pathogen genomes/loci) or MYbaits WGE kit. Please contact us for advice on how to plan your captures.
