General description

GenomePlex WGA Reamplification Kit utilizes a proprietary amplification method that is based on random fragmentation of genomic DNA and conversion of the resulting small fragments to PCR-amplifiable library molecules flanked by universal priming sites. WGA is achieved by PCR amplification of the library molecules using universal oligonucleotide primers.


GenomePlex® WGA Reamplification Kit has been used to generate DNA probes (μBm-probe and μBsm-probe) labeled with digoxigenin-11-dUTP.

Features and Benefits

  • Starting material: 10 ng
  • Expected yield: 5 - 10 μg
  • Time required: ~1.5 hours
  • Provides a method to accurately amplify whole genome amplified DNA
  • Successive reamplification with WGA-3 provides DNA with little genetic bias when compared to the original genome
  • Maintains representation of the entire genome through subsequent reamplifications
  • Preserves precious source material by amplifying nanogram amounts of starting genomic DNA into microgram yields (on average up to 500-fold)
  • Minimal allele drop out maintained through five successive cycles
  • Increases the number of downstream assays and allows more information to be gathered on that sample
  • Provides the opportunity to re-amplify the WGA DNA without having to purchase an entire WGA kit

Other Notes

The sequences of the universal primers provided in this kit are considered proprietary.

Chromosomal rearrangements have long fascinated evolutionary biologists for being widely implicated in causing genetic differentiation. Suppressed recombination has been demonstrated in various species with inversion; however, there is controversy over whether such recombination suppression would facilitate divergence in reciprocal translocation...
