    I agree with pmiguel; this is typical of TRIzol extractions. Because I usually think DNAse treatment should remove all of the gDNA in the sample if used as directed, I won't worry much about gDNA contamination.

    Of course pasing through a column would remove this peak, but this can also be done by isopropanol precipitation using a lower volume of isopropanol relative to the aqueous phase.

    Sure, they could be DNA fragments -- but to me this looks like a normal Trizol extracted RNA chromatogram. Overall pico chips are more sensitive than nano chips, obviously. But I have not noticed pico chips being unusually sensitive to shorter molecules.

    Again, if the low molecular weight stuff is really bugging you, just get rid of it.

    Thx for your answer. But do you think is there any chance that those peaks are DNA fragments? Moreover, I used the RNA 6000 pico kit. Will that be more sensitive to small fragments compare with nano kit and that's why I have a high cluster of peaks below 200nt?

    Sure, your RNA looks great. Trizol preps normally do not remove the small RNAs abundant in all cells. That is what you are seeing below 200 nt.

    The only caveat I can think of is that if you are doing standard RNAseq, input amounts of RNA may not be calibrated for large percentages of the total RNA prep being small RNAs. It should not present a problem in your case, but I have seen preps where it looked like >70% of the RNA was small.

    If you are concern there are lots of methods to fractionate away the small RNAs. For example Zymo RNA clean up columns come with a method for washing off small RNA prior to eluting.

    Exploring the Dynamics of the Tumor Microenvironment
    by seqadmin




    The complexity of cancer is clearly demonstrated in the diverse ecosystem of the tumor microenvironment (TME). The TME is made up of numerous cell types and its development begins with the changes that happen during oncogenesis. “Genomic mutations, copy number changes, epigenetic alterations, and alternative gene expression occur to varying degrees within the affected tumor cells,” explained Andrea O’Hara, Ph.D., Strategic Technical Specialist at Azenta. “As...

    Exploring Human Diversity Through Large-Scale Omics
    by seqadmin


    In 2003, researchers from the Human Genome Project (HGP) announced the most comprehensive genome to date1. Although the genome wasn’t fully completed until nearly 20 years later2, numerous large-scale projects, such as the International HapMap Project and 1000 Genomes Project, continued the HGP's work, capturing extensive variation and genomic diversity within humans. Recently, newer initiatives have significantly increased in scale and expanded beyond genomics, offering a more detailed...
