Several methods have been developed to enrich DNA for subsets of the genome prior to next-generation sequencing. These front-end enrichment strategies provide powerful and cost-effective tools for researchers interested in collecting large-scale genomic sequence data. In this review, I provide an overview of both general and targeted reduced representation enrichment strategies that are commonly used in tandem with next-generation sequencing. I focus on several key issues that are likely to be important when deciding which enrichment strategy is most appropriate for a given experiment. Overall, these techniques can enable the collection of large-scale genomic data in diverse species, providing a powerful tool for the study of evolutionary biology.
