Next-generation sequencing (NGS) techniques have made sequencing exponentially faster, more accurate, and less costly. Today, whole genome and whole exome sequencing is commonplace. However, some situations call for a more focused approach. Targeted DNA sequencing allows researchers to investigate specific genomic regions of interest rather than entire genomes or exomes, offering much deeper coverage without overwhelming cost or logistic burdens.
