Sequencing Coverage

1. How much sequencing coverage do I need?

Before starting a sequencing experiment, you should know the depth of sequencing you want to achieve. Use the technical note to estimate the coverage and the coverage calculator spreadsheet to help with calculating the reagents and sequencing runs that are needed to arrive at the desired coverage for your experiment.
