    Greetings!

    Hello all,

    I'm Caesar from East Africa. I'm currently working on a small RNA sequencing project related to plant pathogens on the Illumina platform.

    Glad to be here!

    Hi everyone
    I am a new PhD candidate from South Africa. My research field is in Colorectal cancer and Bioinformatics.
    Unfortunately even I have no formal education background in bioinformatics. Therefore, I am hoping to seek help from you !

    Hi my name is Bill Giles. I live in Camarillo, CA. I have a BS in Biology from 1982. Currently retired from a career in Medical Supply Industry I have an un-scratched itch in the region of genomics and bioinformatics. I am gobbling up courses in same on Coursera and other online platforms. I love what you do and am digging through all the hidden pearls on this site. Love to All.

    Hello, & Thank-you!

    Hello all,
    I'm a long time reader of SEQanwers, but new to posting. I absolutely love the guidelines to users! Thank-you for delineating them so clearly!

    My background working in BioScience labs over the last 16 years started 1st as an undergrad Research Assistant, then as a grad student conducting my own research. My first job in science was 5 years as a Microbiologist in the North-West Regional Newborn Screening Program for the State of Oregon, followed by 5 years Supervising a Next Gen Sequencing (Illumina) Core Service lab at the University of Southern California Norris Comprehensive Cancer Center and Keck School of Medicine. This year I began as a Research Lab Coordinator for brand new PI Dr. Graham McVicker at the Salk Institute in La Jolla, CA.

    Our lab studies Transcription Regulation in Immune Cells. My first project is to preform ATAC- and RNA-seq on Jurkat cells. As this will be my first foray into ATAC-seq, I'm hoping to glean insights into the protocol & process from anyone here with experience in this area.

    I look forward to interacting with this community.

    Hmm. Well you just did.

    As for how to post in the correct sub-forum use the directions in my post above yours.

    SeqAnswers.com --> Select Forums option on left --> Choose Appropriate forum --> "New Thread" button at top left of the page (after you select the forum you want to post in).

    In the upper-left corner of a forum is the "New Thread" button. You can't see it when viewing a specific thread. For example, go here:

    New here? Stop in and introduce yourself. Where you are, what you work on, etc.


    and it will be in the upper-left.

    I would add a following point:

    11) If you claim that something isn't working or that there is a problem, then it is incredibly useful to others if you post the error message that you are getting.

    Do not ask what has already been answered
    On the other hand, if someone takes the time to post their gels/traces of an issue and otherwise post in an intelligible fashion, I think they deserve some slack on this point. There are lots of issues that look very similar to one another, but have different causes in sample prep.

    Also, we rely heavily on kit lots that sometimes have issues that get past the company's QC. People asking questions about problems they are having is a source of information for others of us who might get stuck with a bum lot of a reagent.

    And people working in the lab are probably not sitting in front of a computer screen 8 hours a day -- so they post less frequently. So again, I would give the bench-side questions more slack than computational ones.

    This is especially important to me. I generally do not answer questions asked me in PM's. If I am going to take the time to answer a question, I would like people other than the person posing the question to benefit from my answer as well.

    I also want to encourage an ongoing discussion of bench protocols. There are lots of "standard" protocols, like alcohol precipitation of nucleic acids and phenol extractions, that really need 20 page protocols to specify all the caveats and failure modes that the master practitioner will be aware of, or at least equipped to handle.

    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...
