  • 1/2 read and coverage?

    hi!
    sorry in advance for this stupid question, but i couldn´t figure it out anywhere:
    what is 1/2 (or 1/8) run? does this only mean that half of the standard-time is used for sequencing, so providing just half of the data? and how is this related to the coverage? is coverage only a function of genome-size and sequenced megabases? so can i calculate the estimated-coverage out of the genome-size and the estimated totally-sequenced-megabases (depending on the number of runs and the 454-system used)?
    i hope someone can help me, because this is confunsing me a bit!

    many thanks. Triticum.

    or is 1/2 one half plate? but is it possible to seperate the plate physically to run e.g. 8x 1/8 runs on the same time?

      Yes, the plates are physically separated and then multiple samples run at the same time (e.g. your DNA and another lab's DNA). Therefore they all get the full flow cyles and full read lengths. Most centres will offer as small as 1/16 of a plate.

        We regularly use 1/16 of a plate for our experiments (metagenomics).

          Recent Advances in Sequencing Analysis Tools
          by seqadmin


          The sequencing world is rapidly changing due to declining costs, enhanced accuracies, and the advent of newer, cutting-edge instruments. Equally important to these developments are improvements in sequencing analysis, a process that converts vast amounts of raw data into a comprehensible and meaningful form. This complex task requires expertise and the right analysis tools. In this article, we highlight the progress and innovation in sequencing analysis by reviewing several of the...

          Essential Discoveries and Tools in Epitranscriptomics
          by seqadmin




          The field of epigenetics has traditionally concentrated more on DNA and how changes like methylation and phosphorylation of histones impact gene expression and regulation. However, our increased understanding of RNA modifications and their importance in cellular processes has led to a rise in epitranscriptomics research. “Epitranscriptomics brings together the concepts of epigenetics and gene expression,” explained Adrien Leger, PhD, Principal Research Scientist...
