What is a molecular barcode (MBC)?

A molecular barcode is a unique 8-bp sequence that is part of the MBC Adapter. and is used to identify unique fragments and “de-duplicate” the sequencing reads from a sample. This, along with the random start sites, helps identify and remove PCR duplicates.

Molecular barcodes are an important element of Archer Anchored Multiplex PCR (AMP) chemistry. Watch the video below to learn more about how molecular barcodes work.
