  • Library preparation for negative control sample?

    Hello,

    I'm wondering if anyone has experience with making libraries with your negative control ChIP sample? I am trying to pull down a particular factor in the wild type cells and also performing the same experiment with cells not expressing that factor to serve as the negative control as the antibody is not that specific, and there is a certain degree of non-specific binding judged from my previous sequencing result.

    Now I'm trying to repeat this experiment and make libraries for both of these two samples again. My question is during the PCR enrichment step, if I PCR amplify my negative sample additional cylces to have enough material for making the library, will that reduece my signal-noise ratio? My concern is that the antibody will pull down something from the genome even in the cells not expressing the factor, and if it's over amplified to a degree that the signal is similar to that from my actual ChIP sampe from the wild type cells, does that mean potentially I will lose some real binding site, as there is amplicon showing up in the negative sample as well...

    I don't know if this is making sense, but if you have any experience or suggestion, that would be highly appreciated..

    Thanks!!

    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...
