  • adapter contamination in reads?????

    hello everyone,

    I would like to ask one qus: why am I getting 3'adapter sequences in R1 and R2 reads (as according to seq protocol machine only generates seq of the fragment between the adapters and not the flanking adapters)??
    Also, is it normal to encounter abundance of 3'adapters in the reads than 5'. if so, why?

    Adapter read through with happen any time your read length is greater than the insert size. 5' contamination happens too, but more rarely.

      thanks for your reply , but i need to know about the main reason / logic behind this. And the other thing why am I getting 3' adapter seq in both reads( R1 and R2)???

        I already told you the main reason. Any time your read length is greater than the insert size you're going to sequence some adapters. These sequences will then be 3'.

          The 3' adapter of R1 is the reverse complement of R2's 5' adapter and vice versa. Since you sequence and read in 5' -> 3' direction, you'll sequence into the 3' adapter any time your read length is greater than the insert size (see Devon's post above). Starting with the 5' adapter is very rare to nearly impossible. If I saw a 5' adapter contamination in Illumina libraries, I would assume that something in the lab went terribly wrong.

              The Impact of AI in Genomic Medicine
              by seqadmin



              Artificial intelligence (AI) has evolved from a futuristic vision to a mainstream technology, highlighted by the introduction of tools like OpenAI's ChatGPT and Google's Gemini. In recent years, AI has become increasingly integrated into the field of genomics. This integration has enabled new scientific discoveries while simultaneously raising important ethical questions1. Interviews with two researchers at the center of this intersection provide insightful perspectives into...

              Multiomics Techniques Advancing Disease Research
              by seqadmin


              New and advanced multiomics tools and technologies have opened new avenues of research and markedly enhanced various disciplines such as disease research and precision medicine1. The practice of merging diverse data from various ‘omes increasingly provides a more holistic understanding of biological systems. As Maddison Masaeli, Co-Founder and CEO at Deepcell, aptly noted, “You can't explain biology in its complex form with one modality.”

              A major leap in the field has
