  • GS Junior pair-end sequencing trouble

    We just did yesterday a run with paired-end libraries on the GS Junior and the results are very strange.
    We had no problem to prepare the libraries. Good concentration and good profile on Agilent Bioanalyzer.



    We did the emulsion as usual and get 5% of enrich beads.
    Usually we 8-9% but since we had 5% we decided to go on.

    Today we get the results and it was very bad.







    We obtain a normal range of raw wells and sample key pass but we had a lot of mix and dots and very few passed filter wells.

    I would to understand if my libraries are good or not.

    Can you tell me were is the sample key? Before or after adaptors?
    With such results I wonder if adaptors ligation went well.

    I don't understand why I have a lot of mixed and dot beads but a good beads enrichment...

    If someone can help me to understand!

    I hope I post in the appropriate category!

    Thank you in advance!

    I don't see there is problem with your library. key is located just after sequencing primer. The template can't be amplified onto the beads without adaptor.

    High dot and mix usually indict the emPCR has problem. You just need repeat emPCR with higher DNA input. I think 5% enrichment is too low, aim to 15%, but below 20% is good beads. and make sure you wash the beads enough before final melting.

      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 on Modified Bases...

      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...
