  • RNA-Seq when not using the Illumina Kit

    Hello to everyone- this is my first posting here. But I always got lot of very useful and valuable information from this forum.

    I use the non-kit version of RNA seq protocol to generate RNA seq libraries. I was successful in the past. I used dynal beads, Ambion Frag buffer, got good mRNA, good fragments (bioanalyzer), good double stranded cDNA (bioanalyzer, high sensitivity DNA chip). I also see good smear after my ligation on the gel. But I've been getting extremely bad PCR results. Very low, strange bands. Not sure where in the next 3 steps after double stranded cDNA synthesis- 1). End repair, 2). A-base addition, or in 3).Ligation itself (hard to believe) the problem is happening, but I'm losing it all. It is not PCR, because my positive control worked. I've using a protocol similar to the one in http://www.unc.edu/htsf/files/PM%20p...%20DNA_1.0.pdf

    If anyone used the custom protocol as this one, What is your instinct about where I'm making it wrong? If you have encountered similar problem in the past, how did you fix it? I have been using the buffers that come with the NEB enzymes for that given reaction- for the end repair, 50%-50% of T4PNK buffer and Buffer 2.

    thank you. SP

    Can you post a picture of your post enrichment PCR products run on a gel?

      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...
