  • Targeted sequence capture - Nimblegen + GS Junior

    Hello all, first time here...

    I am attempting to put together a proposal that involves sub-genomic sequencing experiments and need some help. Here is how I envision it working:

    I would like to take 40-50 primary tumors and extract genomic DNA, create a custom array chip that will capture my regions of interest (three well-characterized genes that are 50-100kb in length).

    Sequence these regions across all tumors and look at the genetic variation present therein.

    I am hoping to use a GS Junior to do the sequencing (that works right?) and they recommend NimbleGen capture arrays.

    Does this sound feasible??

    Much obliged!

    It does, I would look into LR-PCR instead of sequence capture first, could be cheaper for those few genes (depending on if you want to sequence the whole gene or only the exons, if only the exons arrays are probably cheaper).

      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...
