  • Publication number: 20210214780
    Abstract: Methods of amplifying and determining a target nucleotide sequence are provided. The method of amplifying the target nucleotide sequence includes the following steps. A first adaptor and a second adaptor are linked to two ends of a double-stranded nucleic acid molecule with a target nucleotide sequence respectively to form a nucleic acid template, in which the first adaptor includes a Y-form adaptor or a hairpin adaptor and the second adaptor is a hairpin adaptor. Then, a PCR amplification cycle is performed on the nucleic acid template to obtain a PCR amplicon of the target nucleotide sequence.

  • Patent number: 10515714
    Abstract: Disclosed herein are methods of determining the sequence and/or positions of modified bases in a nucleic acid sample present in a circular molecule with a nucleic acid insert of known sequence comprising obtaining sequence data of at least two insert-sample units. In some embodiments, the methods comprise obtaining sequence data using circular pair-locked molecules. In some embodiments, the methods comprise calculating scores of sequences of the nucleic acid inserts by comparing the sequences to the known sequence of the nucleic acid insert, and accepting or rejecting repeats of the sequence of the nucleic acid sample according to the scores of one or both of the sequences of the inserts immediately upstream or downstream of the repeats of the sequence of the nucleic acid sample.
