  • Titanium PE yields?

    Hi,

    Our local sequencing provider says the soon-to-be-released Titanium PE kits produce a mix (about half-half) of shotgun reads and PE reads on a given run, where the shotgun reads come from the non-adapted ("internal") part of the circularised molecule. The only info I've seen on 454 Titanium PE sequencing is this ad from Roche: http://www.454.com/downloads/DeNovoC...omes_Flyer.pdf
    • Does anyone know how many shotgun and/or PE reads one expects to get from a single plate of Titanium PE sequencing?
    • Can anyone clarify whether there is a selection step for PE constructs prior to sequencing - if so why are non-PE shotgun sequences still prevalent?


    Thanks!

    In my opinion, the yield may be little lower, cause there are about 40nt linker exist in the PE reads. But I don't have the exact data.

    For your question 2, I'm also puzzled. The estimation is quite depending on your sequencing DNA genome size. For larger genome, the two kinds of reads should be mixed to help get a de novo sequencing genome. For smaller genome, either reads will fix the genome, but the shotgun reads is much cheaper.

      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...
