With the advent of next-generation sequencing (NGS) technology, methods previously developed for microarrays have been adapted for use by NGS. Here we describe in detail a protocol for Barcode analysis by sequencing (Bar-seq) to assess pooled competitive growth of individually barcoded yeast deletion mutants. This protocol has been optimized on two sequencing platforms: Illumina's Genome Analyzer IIx/HiSeq2000 and Life Technologies SOLiD3/5500. In addition, we provide guidelines for assessment of human knockdown cells using short-hairpin RNAs (shRNA) and an Illumina sequencing readout.
