  • Wield MiSeq error rate at the beginning

    Recently when we run amplicon libraries on MiSeqs(2 miSeq instruments), we got wield high error rate dots at the beginning of each read. The overall error rate and Q30 was good, we just would like to understand why this was happening. Did anyonce face this before?

    Thanks

    feixiang1019 that's very strange. Have you experienced this with any other libraries you have run?

    Also, what are the amplicons you are sequencing? Is there a lot of diversity in the sequences?

      We see this all the time with amplicon libraries with low nucleotide diversities. I had the impression this is unavoidable with low diversity libraries.

        JBKri that's what I was expecting. I haven't run amplicons on an Illumina instrument in a while, but I always remember steep drop-offs when there was low diversity.

        feixiang1019 if this remains an issue you can add more PhiX to your runs or add in more diverse samples.

          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...
