  • 1x500 miseq reads instead of 2x250?

    A while back ECO posted some great info on a 1x300 miseq run. Has anybody tried a similar run with an upgraded instrument to achieve a 500 nt read? Will the software permit this? How do the base qualities trail off?

    I dont see how it would. If the sum of your amplicon is shorter than that of your paired ends you can join them based on a region of overlap

      We've done several 1x300 runs with 300 cycle kits, and there is a noticeable dropoff in quality after ~base 250 on good runs. I can't imagine that a 1x500 run would give you more than ~300 bases of usable data.

        The 1x300 runs you are referring to were likely done with v.1 kits?

        It is great if koadman is willing to sacrifice a v.2 kit and enlighten all on two things: if the 1 x 500 will work and where the drop-off in qualities can be expected to start.

          Well of course I was hoping not to be the sacrificial lamb, but if nobody else has tried this and able to share data I guess I will take one for the team! Now just need to find a willing pair of lab hands here in Sydney...

            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...

            Strategies for Sequencing Challenging Samples
            by seqadmin


            Despite advancements in sequencing platforms and related sample preparation technologies, certain sample types continue to present significant challenges that can compromise sequencing results. Pedro Echave, Senior Manager of the Global Business Segment at Revvity, explained that the success of a sequencing experiment ultimately depends on the amount and integrity of the nucleic acid template (RNA or DNA) obtained from a sample. “The better the quality of the nucleic acid isolated...
