  • unwanted nucleotides at the ends of Lib-A libraries

    Hi everybody.
    The problem we faced with is the failed emPCR - less 2% output. Increasing of matrix input didn’t improve situation.

    Our libraries (for A-lib kit) were prepared by 2-step PCR. A-key, B-key and MIDs were attached to the target amplicons during second step.

    We sequenced our libraries by Sanger and found that there are additional unexpected nucleotides in the ends: AG on the B-key and A on the A-key.

    We wonder whether these unwanted nucleotides appeared due defective primers we got or inappropriate polymerase we used (Tersus) or may be they are just sequencing artefacts (Applied Biosystems BigDye® Terminator v3.1).

    And the main question is - How such nucleotides could affect emPCR?
    (another version is a bad emPCR kit)

    It would be nice to hear your considerations.
    Or maybe someone had similar difficulties.

    Recent Advances in Sequencing Analysis Tools
    by seqadmin


    The sequencing world is rapidly changing due to declining costs, enhanced accuracies, and the advent of newer, cutting-edge instruments. Equally important to these developments are improvements in sequencing analysis, a process that converts vast amounts of raw data into a comprehensible and meaningful form. This complex task requires expertise and the right analysis tools. In this article, we highlight the progress and innovation in sequencing analysis by reviewing several of the...

    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...
