  • GS FLX & Illumina

    Hi guys,

    I'm new to nextgen sequencing technologies. We have started using 454/FLX technology. Can anyone tell me how Illumina differs from FLX? Is it possible to sequence samples enriched on Agilent (sureselect) by FLX.
    Any thoughts appreciated.

    Illumina and solid both take DNA fragments, and rather than giving you a few hundred bases, like 454 does, it gives you about 50 bases of each end, and it gives you a whole lot more of them. 10-20 million per lane, 8 lanes a run. If you have enough fragments, then having an idea of the distance between your two ends is almost as good as having the whole sequence.

    I don't see why Agilent wouldn't work with 454, but Roche owns Nimblegen, so they will steer you towards that technology, and not Agilent's. And that means that Agilent has a lot more incentive to work with Solid and Illumina, so you might not get as much support from Agilent as illumina users would.

      Illumina

      Thanks for the reply, swbarnes2. I'm interested to know more about Illumina's work flow. Is it available on the web?

            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...
