  • Can I load two DNA and two RNA samples to one HiSeq 2500 rapid mode flowcell?

    Is it technically possible? Or do I need to put them in two rapid mode flowcells?

    Thanks in advance.

    As long as the read type (single/Paired) and base length is the same, it doesn't matter what sample type is in any given lane.

    The only time it matters is in the processing what you align it to-genome or transcriptome.

      Yeah. That's what I thought. But a BGI staff told me that's not possible. Can it be due to different library sizes?

        It would be a problem to combine them into one lane as different sizes as they would not cluster equivalently, but separate lanes should be fine.

          Are the sequencing primers for the two libraries the same?

            Thank you for your reply. Two of them are exome and the other two are rna-seq. I presume these two sets are prepared differently but they should be at least be able to fit in two lanes. Let me call them and check again...

              Since there are two lanes per Rapid Run Mode flow cell, you may can try to load each type of library into each flow cell lane independently.

                I called BGI again. They said it is actually feasible but they haven't had any experience with the Truseq Duo Loading Kit yet, so that's why the rep answered that way.

                I consider my problem as solved. Thanks everyone for contributing.

                  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...
