  • 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.

        Recent Advances in Sequencing Analysis Tools
        by seqadmin


        The sequencing world is rapidly changing due to declining costs, enhanced accuracies, and the advent of newer, cutting-edge instruments. Equally important to these developments are improvements in sequencing analysis, a process that converts vast amounts of raw data into a comprehensible and meaningful form. This complex task requires expertise and the right analysis tools. In this article, we highlight the progress and innovation in sequencing analysis by reviewing several of the...

        Essential Discoveries and Tools in Epitranscriptomics
        by seqadmin




        The field of epigenetics has traditionally concentrated more on DNA and how changes like methylation and phosphorylation of histones impact gene expression and regulation. However, our increased understanding of RNA modifications and their importance in cellular processes has led to a rise in epitranscriptomics research. “Epitranscriptomics brings together the concepts of epigenetics and gene expression,” explained Adrien Leger, PhD, Principal Research Scientist...
