When should I perform preamplification prior to SNP genotyping on the Fluidigm platform?
Preamplification can be used to improve data quality when there is:
- Low and/or varied sample concentration or low copy numbers due to large genome size.
- Low sample quality.
- Carryover of inhibitory compounds from DNA extraction (more common for plant species).
