  • Metagenomic with 454 Junior

    I try to sequence multiplex (21 samples) amplicons for months !! Amplicon size is around 609 pb (with MID ...). The problem is that the yield is very low (2%) with 2 or 4 cpb and when I sequence I juste have 50 bp instead of 609 pb (bioanalyzer is ok, no small fragments).

    Do you think to increase elongation time of emPCR will be better or the problem come from an other step ?

    Thank for your help !

    You are experiencing things that a lot of users are experiencing. Do the following to minimize your losses:

    1) increase your cpb to between 15 and 30cpb. I know this seems insane but it's the only way.
    2) get a KAPA qPCR Lib-A/Lib-L kit to accurately quantify libraries.
    3) ask for newest lots to be shipped to you and hope.

      You can also try the long amplicon emPCR protocol since yours is >600bp.

        Thank you very much for your advice ! I will try all of that this afternoom and I will let you know. Have a good day.

          We size select twice with Ampure XP for amplicon sequencing, primer (and/or primer dimer) that is undetectable by bioanalyzer can still lead to a big short read spike. Our amplicon is 676 bp and the long emPCR protocol had an instant and amazing effect on improving the runs on our Jr.

          Our optimized cbp is 0.35 - so seems very variable from site to site. The kapa kits are expensive, particularly relative to a Jr run, so we don't use them.

            The Impact of AI in Genomic Medicine
            by seqadmin



            Artificial intelligence (AI) has evolved from a futuristic vision to a mainstream technology, highlighted by the introduction of tools like OpenAI's ChatGPT and Google's Gemini. In recent years, AI has become increasingly integrated into the field of genomics. This integration has enabled new scientific discoveries while simultaneously raising important ethical questions1. Interviews with two researchers at the center of this intersection provide insightful perspectives into...

            Multiomics Techniques Advancing Disease Research
            by seqadmin


            New and advanced multiomics tools and technologies have opened new avenues of research and markedly enhanced various disciplines such as disease research and precision medicine1. The practice of merging diverse data from various ‘omes increasingly provides a more holistic understanding of biological systems. As Maddison Masaeli, Co-Founder and CEO at Deepcell, aptly noted, “You can't explain biology in its complex form with one modality.”

            A major leap in the field has
