  • RNA cleanup after fragmentation - illumina

    Does anybody know any alternative to RNA precipitation after the fragmentation step?
    I´ve been thinking about RNeasy MinElute Cleanup from Qiagen or SPRI beads. In this case, which beads are more adequate? Would AMPure XP work?

    Thanks

    RNA ppt vs SPRI or MinElute

    Either SPRI or MinElute frequently lower your yield; if RNA is not limiting this is not a problem. Recommend that you have calibrated your SPRI beads if they are XP as there is slight risk of selectively losing fragments in your target size range. Haven't actually used SPRI for this but have successfully used MinElute albeit common to only get 1/2 of the RNA back.

      Just be aware that Ampure XP gets rid of all fragments of 100bp or less. I'm not sure what it is for the other methods.

        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...
