(biochemistry)

DNA

deoxyribonucleic acid; a nucleic acid that is the main constituent of the chromosomes of all organisms (except some viruses). The DNA molecule consists of two polynucleotide chains in the form of a double helix, containing phosphate and the sugar deoxyribose and linked by hydrogen bonds between the complementary bases adenine and thymine or cytosine and guanine. DNA is self-replicating, plays a central role in protein synthesis, and is responsible for the transmission of hereditary characteristics from parents to offspring

This approach utilizes very long (>120 bases) oligonucleotides complementary to all of the exons in the human genome to generate biotinylated RNA "baits" that are used to pull out the exon sequences from a sheared genomic DNA library that already contains sequencing adaptors.
