  • library frgments size

    Hi,
    I'm preparing a library using NEB ChIP-seq kit. I'm starting with ssDNA of 250-800nt, making it double stranded using Klenow and random primers and then using the kit. The size of the fragments that I get after the PCR amplification is around 400bp (that includes the 120bp addition of the adapters and primers). I tried to start the library preparation with dsDNA the same size (250-800bp) and got the same 400bp library, so I don't think that the Klenow step is the problem.
    Do you have any ideas why do I have selection for the short fragments and how to overcome it (since it is very important to me that the final library will represents all lengths).
    Thanks

    I haven't used the NEB chip kit but most kits have a size selection step that would cause other sizes to be removed.

    If you skip that step you should get all sizes. When you go to sequence them just remeber to lower the loading concentration a bit as 800 strting will be over 900 bases as a library and takes up quite a bit of real estate on the the flow cell and it is easy to overcluster.

      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...
