  • Agilent human exon coverage plots

    My lab has been using the Agilent 50Mb SureSelect Human All Exon kit for many months now. Though the data is acceptable, we can’t help but wonder why our coverage plots look so different from Agilent coverage plots. (see attachment) Do other users produce data that results in coverage plots similar to those advertised by Agilent? If so, do you have any suggestions as to why we are seeing this disparity? Or, are our results the accepted norm?

    How are you sequencing it? GAIIX, HiSeq, SOLdD etc? Barcoded? If so, how many exomes per lane?

      These were ran on HiSeq 2000, and were not indexed.

        What are you seeing for percent on target?

          on target is around 72-80%.

            Also, we are getting an average of 80 million reads for a PE 2x101.

              Your curves are consistent with what I see when running Agilent 50M SureSelect with paired 100bp reads.

              Not sure what this "Agilent's data" curve you're showing is, but it may be due to any number of things--library prep, Agilent likely used paired 76bp reads (which they recommend), et cetera.

                Thanks for the input.
                Do you see similar coverage plots for Agilent mouse?
                We have noticed that the curves for mouse differ greatly from human, using the same protocol, reagents and technicians. See attachment.

                  I don't understand the Y-axis here. What are you calling "the exome"?

                  Haven't done Mouse myself. But again, I would not fret over this.

                  The Sureselect 50M performance is still high over its targets regardless.

                    Hi,

                    could you provide the script, with which you have generated the plot shown in "human coverage plot.pdf" ?

                      Current Approaches to Protein Sequencing
                      by seqadmin


                      Proteins are often described as the workhorses of the cell, and identifying their sequences is key to understanding their role in biological processes and disease. Currently, the most common technique used to determine protein sequences is mass spectrometry. While still a valuable tool, mass spectrometry faces several limitations and requires a highly experienced scientist familiar with the equipment to operate it. Additionally, other proteomic methods, like affinity assays, are constrained...

                      Strategies for Sequencing Challenging Samples
                      by seqadmin


                      Despite advancements in sequencing platforms and related sample preparation technologies, certain sample types continue to present significant challenges that can compromise sequencing results. Pedro Echave, Senior Manager of the Global Business Segment at Revvity, explained that the success of a sequencing experiment ultimately depends on the amount and integrity of the nucleic acid template (RNA or DNA) obtained from a sample. “The better the quality of the nucleic acid isolated...
