  • 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.

    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.

    The advancement of single-cell sequencing began in 2009 when Tang et al. investigated the single-cell transcriptomes
