  • Size selection after Covaris shearing...necessary?

    With a show of hands, how many people still do size selection post ligation after shearing genomic DNA by Covaris ? I've heard that many skip size selection now, but many others still size select.

    For exome capture we don't do size selection. We purify with SPRI beads and that adequately removes adapter/primer-dimer.

      Depends how tight of a size distribution you want. We size select post-Covaris to get a narrow distribution allowing assembly of overlapping paired-end reads. Size selection can also help you get longer read lengths since all PCR based sequencing approaches (454, Illumina) do tend to enrich for smaller fragments.

        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...
