  • 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.

          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...
