  • iSeq 100 user new here

    Hi Folks,
    iSeq 100 user here, checking in!
    May all your runs be bountiful

    Hi Everyone, We acquired this machine recently. we are resource-limited researchers and want to sequence the CoV-2 genome from a limited number of patients. How many iseq cartridges will be needed per sample, if we use Enrichment Sequencing by Spiked Primer MSSPE method?

      Hello Everyone,
      I know this thread is quite old, but wanted to know how has your experience been so far with the iSeq 100?

      We have only performed one run, and although Q30 was quite good for the Read 1 and 2, the indexes were read with lower Q30, even though we had a good balance of bases in each cycle (checked after the run in basespace).

      I was wondering if there were other tips to improve Q30 during indexing? It's a shame to lose good reads due to poor indexing

        jjimenez I would imagine that the only way to improve the Q30 for index reads is to further increase the index complexity or add more PhiX. You said you had a good balance but I wondered if there was a way you further increase the diversity of these bases.

          OK,
          So this was not the greatest SeqRun, a lot of short fragments that give rise to the Poly-Gs you see after Cycle 120 (clearly, we have to be more stringent with the size selection). Going back to the Q30 metrics

          Read 1: 92.75% >Q30
          Read 2: 82.71% >Q30
          Read 3: 79.38% >Q30
          Read 4: 90.02% >Q30


          During the indexing reads, no base goes above 40% representantion. I wouldn't think its a diversity issue? And PhiX wouldn't help, since its not indexed (unless we get the indexed one from other sources, but I dont think we'll do that)

          The run was a bit underloaded though (82% ocupation), I wonder if that has any effect.

            jjimenez you're right, for some reason, I kept thinking PhiX adds to the index diversity but it doesn't. Although having a slightly underloaded run shouldn't cause this issue either. I haven't run anything on the iSeq yet, but whenever I had this problem on the NextSeq, I would just spike in other libraries for additional diversity. I know that doesn't answer your question but it seemed to help.

              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...
