  • Publication number: 20210171941
    Abstract: This invention provides a primer used for a next-generation sequencer that can provide a large number of reads. On the basis of the sequence: 5?-CAAGCAGAAGACGGCATACGAGAT-N5 to 15-GTCTCGTGGGCTCGGAGATGTGTATAAGA-GACAG-3?, wherein N5 to 15 indicates an index sequence of 5 to 15 nucleotides), an index sequence is designed as a nucleotide sequence exhibiting the putative number of reads, which is calculated using the estimation formula designating the number of reads as a purpose variable and the type of nucleotides in the index sequence as an explanatory variable, exceeding a given level.
