  • Amplicon sequencing - fusion primers ordering

    Dear all,

    we would like to order fusion primers for 454 GS Junior amplicon sequencing.

    When consulting the manual, we are not sure if the primers need to have Phosphorothioated DNA bases on the ends and if B primer needs to be labeled with biotin (or is this true just for shotgun sequencing)?

    Thank you for your help.

    Amplicon sequencing - fusion primers ordering

    Hi,

    The phosphorothioate bases are there to inhibit any exonuclease activity, so you can order them without. It did work in our hands but if you get any contamination you'll have a problem!

    The biotin on the B primer is necessary for the enrichment (enrichment beads are streptavidin coated magnetic beads) of the amplified beads, regardless the type of library.

      For the FLX, the primers do not need to be biotinylated; standard primers work fine. Biotin doesn't come into the process until the enrichment stage, and the biotin there comes from the enrichment primer, not from the primers you used to create your library. Furthermore, only one molecule of the original library you make with your primers will end up on the bead and even if it was biotinylated, the biotin molecule would be stripped off (along with that original molecule) when you add the melt solution.

        A Brief Overview and Common Challenges in Single-cell Sequencing Analysis
        by seqadmin


        ​​​​​​The introduction of single-cell sequencing has advanced the ability to study cell-to-cell heterogeneity. Its use has improved our understanding of somatic mutations1, cell lineages2, cellular diversity and regulation3, and development in multicellular organisms4. Single-cell sequencing encompasses hundreds of techniques with different approaches to studying the genomes, transcriptomes, epigenomes, and other omics of individual cells. The analysis of single-cell sequencing data i...

        Introduction to Single-Cell Sequencing
        by seqadmin
        Single-cell sequencing is a technique used to investigate the genome, transcriptome, epigenome, and other omics of individual cells using high-throughput sequencing. This technology has provided many scientific breakthroughs and continues to be applied across many fields, including microbiology, oncology, immunology, neurobiology, precision medicine, and stem cell research.
