Researchers at the University of Pennsylvania deep-sequenced mitochondrial DNA of patients with primary open-angle glaucoma, plus a control group for comparison. They testing a theory implicating variation in mtDNA in this disease, but it could not be confirmed. Pippin Prep was used for size selection of Ion PGM libraries, per the Ion Express protocol.
