  • Y-adapters better for low diversity library

    I have had a problem with base calling due to a low diversity library on Miseq. I used P5 and P7 adapters with two amplification steps. The library is a PCR product. Would Y adapters be a better option, or am I not on the right track.

    Your adapters probably aren't the problem, it's just the fact that it's a low diversity library. What % phiX did you spike in and what was your cluster density?

      Y-adapters could indeed be better (by 50%; because there will be no P5toP5 and no P7toP7 ligations) but they are unlikely to be the problem, in my eyes.
      We do not know anything about your current adapters and objectives though.

        With your approach, using adapters is not possible. There are some options to increase diversity of amplicons:
        1- Sequencing pool of different amplicons
        2- Spiking in a high diversity library
        3- increasing amplicons library diversity by adding 0-3 diversity nucleotides to 5' end of target specific sequences of primers (3' to adapter overhang)

          Also loading a lower concentration (ie lower cluster density) will help

            My first experiment with Y-adapters shows the base caller problem to be minimal as evaluated by the read 1-2 base intensity graph in Illumina SAV. The variant caller also shows a great reduction in false variants. I still need to load my control for comparison and repeat this finding again - Thanks

              PhiX

              I went as high as 20% with minimal improvement

                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...
