  • Targeted sequencing of large genomic fagments (100 kb) with NGS

    Hi everyone,

    I'm looking for a protocol that describes how to sequence in many individuals a specific stretch of DNA of about 100 kb.

    My idea is to PCR amplify this genomic sequence by performing simple, mutliple PCRs with ovelapping products. Since I have a reference genome, primer design won't be any problem. Then, I would simply shear these PCR products to the appropriate fragment size (depending on the platform) and ligate an adapter to them. This I would do seperately for every individual specimen. In case of a HiSeq Illumina platform, I would shear individual PCR products to a length of about 100 bp and ligate an adapter to them that holds the Illumina primer site and a specific barcode. Afterwards I would pool these sheared-barcode-ligated PCR products of many individuals and sequence on a HiSeq.
    Once I get the data, I could then make alignments for every individual (the individual specimen can be inferred by looking at the barcode), which I guess shouldn't have any gaps if I have enough reads per indidivuals available, since reads will overlap (by chance event du to rndom shearing of PCR products).

    This is just how I would do it.

    Now, PLEASE, I'm looking for any protocols that tell me how to sequence such long-stretch DNA from mutliple individuals on a NGS machine. Can be Roche 454 or Illumina or any other NGS platform. It can be anything like I tried to describe above or a completely different approach.
    Thank you for ideas, protocols, relevant papers etc.!

    Have you looked into the Halo Genomics selector technology? This is probably around its sweet spot. If you wish to look at a very large number of individuals, Rain Dance might be a possibility as well.

    Any of the capture oligo technologies (Illumina, Agilent, Nimblegen, etc) can operate in this range, of course. You haven't said how big "multiple" is, which could have a huge impact on picking a technology.

      I haven't loooked at these technologies yet..

      Regarding "multiple": about 120 individuals, 100 kB each, with a good coverage if possible (50 x or so). Preferentially, I would have a single (ungapped) assembly of these 100bk for each indidivual specimen to then call SNPs..

      Since I have easily access to an Illumina platform (HiSeq) and a Roche 454 platform (preferentially Illumina): is there a reliable to way to do this on these platforms?

        Hello,
        Here is a paper that I was on which involved the capture of ~8kb fragments, however it could easily be adapted to capture 100kb. It takes a little more upfront work, but will provide many aliquots for capture.

        Although next-generation sequencing (NGS) has been the domain of large genome centers, it is quickly becoming more accessible to general pathology laboratories. In addition to finding single-base changes, NGS allows for the detection of larger structural variants, including insertions/deletions, tra …

          Thank you!!! I actually found this kit by Illumina: TruSeq Custom Amplicon (TSCA).

          Does anyone have experience with it? Is it well suited to e.g. sequence 4 different 96kb genomic fragments in multiple specimens? How is the quality? Coverage? - I'm happy for any experience and comments!

            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...
