    Poor yield of the libraries from RT-PCR product

    Hi all,

    We are doing the metagenomics study by using RT-PCR products as the samples for the libraries preparation. We are using NEBNext Quick DNA Sample Prep kit for the job.

    We have selected the DNA fragments from 300bp to 800bp by gel method first, then we proceeded the library preparation as referred to NEB instruction manual. We have used Roche MID adaptors for the ligation step. We have done the qPCR (KAPA) to quantify the amount of molecules with adaptors properly ligated. Unfortunately, we found the yield (the amount of molecules with ligated adaptors) was poor which were not enough for downstream LV emPCR for FLX. Compared with sample from sheared genomic DNA for library preparation, the amount of the molecules from RT-PCR products were lower than in 10 to 100 fold.

    We wonder anyone have similar experience and how to get through the problem. Did you think the method to prepare RT-PCR product can affect the ligation efficiency?

    Thanks for your input

    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...
