Welcome to the Stanford Human OligoGenome Project

The Stanford Human OligoGenome Project hosts a database of capture oligonucleotides for conducting high-throughput targeted resequencing of the human genome. This set of capture oligonucleotides covers over 92% of the human genome for build 37 / hg19 and over 99% of the coding regions defined by the Consensus Coding Sequence (CCDS). The capture reaction uses a highly multiplexed approach for selectively circularizing and capturing multiple genomic regions using the in-solution method developed in Natsoulis et al, PLoS One 2011. Combined pools of capture oligonucleotides selectively circularize the genomic DNA target, followed by specific PCR amplification of regions of interest using a universal primer pair common to all of the capture oligonucleotides. Unlike multiplexed PCR methods, selective genomic circularization is capable of efficiently amplifying hundreds of genomic regions simultaneously in multiplex without requiring extensive PCR optimization or producing unwanted side reaction products. Benefits of the selective genomic circularization method are the relative robustness of the technique and low costs of synthesizing standard capture oligonucleotide for selecting genomic targets.
