  • High Short Reads %

    Hello, there,,

    Recently, I perfomed the GS FLX Sequencing run using 70X75 PTP, 4 Regions Gasket.
    Unfortunately, I got some weired results.
    Actual keypass reads# of my library was about ~170000, but most of them(~70%) were filtered out due to short read length. Control reads were also similar results.
    This is the first time that I get this kind of problem while I'm using 454's Genome sequencer.
    I'm supspecting of reagent itself or instrument fluidic part.

    Is there anyone who can hlep me or suffering from this kind of issue?

    I have no idea of what is causing it, but short read lengths are typical of multiple templates in a bead. When this occurs, the sequence quality drops and the read is trimmed and is discarded or becomes short.

      Multiple templates per bead results in mixed reads, not short reads. That would also not explain the results with the control reads. Given that you saw the problem with the control samples focus your search on the sequencing run itself (as opposed to the library preparation or emPCR). Contact Roche support with and include information about the lot number(s) for the sequencing kit.

        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...
