This study aims to identify novel candidate variants from human Y-chromosomal genes DAZ, BPY2 and CDY1 by resequencing the coding regions of these genes from male patients with spermatogenic impairment. The coding regions of the genes have been amplified by standard PCR, amplicon lengths range from 244 to 486 bp. A total of 61 amplicons were amplified for each of the 96 patients, totalling to approx. 25 kb per sample. Amplicons were quantified by gel electrophoresis and pooled in approx. equimolar concentrations per patient. For each of the 96 submitted samples, approx. 1 microgram of amplified DNA pool is provided in a total volume of 120 microlitres. The samples need to be indexed and libraries prepared for a PE250bp Illumina MiSeq run. This data is part of a pre-publication release.
