  • Bacterial WGS on Ion Torrent

    Hi There,..
    We were running a bacterial WGS using Ion fragment library prep kit protocol.
    After fragmentation of sample, we performed adaptor ligation and
    did size selection of libraries using simple AGE gel exclusion of 200-400bp region from smears (due to unavailability of other size selection options)
    We quantified libraries using Ion Universal Library Quantification Kit.

    Picture of AGE gel is attached.
    Quantification results were up to the mark giving individual libraries quantities above 100pm.

    After equalization, we put our libraries on IonChef for Templating, and then on Ion S5 XL for sequencing.
    Results gave median length of 50bp and after assembly a contiguous sequence of 500bp per sample.

    Need troubleshooting on this case.

    Looking forward to hearing from NGS experts.
    Thanks in anticipations.

    Best Regards.

    was that the Ion Torrent™ Ion Xpress™ Plus Fragment Library Kit (Cat. No. 4471269) for preparing library or he Ion Plus Fragment Library Kit (Cat. No. 4471252) because the later involves physical fragmentation via sonication method .

      Surely the same as mentioned above. But we did enzymatic fragmentation by Ion Shear fragmentation kit because no physical fragmentation strategy was available.

        A Brief Overview and Common Challenges in Single-cell Sequencing Analysis
        by seqadmin

        ​​​​​​The introduction of single-cell sequencing has advanced the ability to study cell-to-cell heterogeneity. Its use has improved our understanding of somatic mutations1, cell lineages2, cellular diversity and regulation3, and development in multicellular organisms4. Single-cell sequencing encompasses hundreds of techniques with different approaches to studying the genomes, transcriptomes, epigenomes, and other omics of individual cells. The analysis of single-cell sequencing data i...

        Introduction to Single-Cell Sequencing
        by seqadmin
        Single-cell sequencing is a technique used to investigate the genome, transcriptome, epigenome, and other omics of individual cells using high-throughput sequencing. This technology has provided many scientific breakthroughs and continues to be applied across many fields, including microbiology, oncology, immunology, neurobiology, precision medicine, and stem cell research.

        The advancement of single-cell sequencing began in 2009 when Tang et al. investigated the single-cell transcriptomes
