  • Seq Capture

    Hi all,

    (first post here - great community!)

    was wondering if anyone has some info on this new method for sequence capture/sample enrichment from febit/Geniom. http://www.geniom.com/en/application...sequencers.cfm

    We are planning on doing exon sequencing on the solexa and are debating which of the available methods offers the most. We also know that Nimblegen has the most "advanced" method, but got a quote of $3500 + $1000 for array design for only 2 samples. this strikes us as a bit too much... might be wrong though...

    thoughts appreciated.

    Capture sequences

    Hi,
    in this moment I'm trying to find a good solution to capture sequences.
    I know that Agilent will release a capture sequence service this fall. I'm waiting... and I hope that the price will be better than Nimblegen!
    Good luck

      Hi,

      Same for me. can we expect a new sequence capture solution from Febit for the next months ?

      Agilent , Febit plan to propose such solution... someone know others company who will do ?

      Have a nice day !

      Sorry for my english, i'm a french guy...

        Hi,

        Do you hear about Raindance Technologies ?

        Bio-Rad is a global leader in developing and manufacturing a wide range of products for the life science research and clinical diagnostic markets.

        Maybe a good alternative... less expensive....

          Good find ATGC_man.

          However this method uses PCR as the basis for enrichment... I'm inclined not to go with PCR-based methods. Although they may be cheaper, I don't think they are the future for seq capture (then again, dunno what is.... )

            Hi Brasj !

            Why is a problem that this method uses PCR as the basis for enrichment ?

            Have a good day !

              I'm just thinking of GC rich regions (TM differences); amount of captured sequences per run (I think it will be difficult to get to the 30Mb advertised by nimblegen); polymerase errors...

              I may be completely wrong, but my feeling is that PCR just isn't it... at least for large projects; may be great for smaller (low number of capture sequences) projects.

              what do you guys think?

                here new Sequence Enrichment Solution from Raindance Technologies...

                Someone have hear something about that ?


                RainDance Technologies Announces Commercial Release of its Sequence Enrichment Solution
                Lexington, MA | Posted on February 5th, 2009
                In an announcement at the 2009 Advances in Genome Biology and Technology Conference (AGBT), the company said it has begun accepting orders for the solution and has started commercial production of the solution's components for shipment during the first quarter.

                "This milestone represents the first commercialized application of our exciting RainStormTM microdroplet-based technology platform," said Chris McNary, President and Chief Executive Officer of RainDance Technologies. "It underscores the power of droplet-based biology to increase the depth of understanding about biological problems and increase the pace of biomedical discovery."

                The RainDance Sequence Enrichment Solution incorporates RainStorm technology for targeted sequencing applications of the human genome. It will enable the high-resolution analysis of genetic variation between individuals within populations at a level unmatched by current methodologies. The solution dramatically improves sample uniformity and reduces the selection bias typically associated with targeted sequencing.

                The Sequence Enrichment Solution consists of the following components:

                * The RDT 1000 system generates picoliter-volume discrete PCR reactions in droplets at the unprecedented rate of 10 million per hour. It amplifies hundreds to thousands of genomic loci with high specificity and uniformity.
                * Custom-Order Content for DNA Primer Libraries will be available that enable the amplification of hundreds to thousands of genomic loci in a single tube. RainDance customers can design and order these libraries specifically for their research applications.
                * Sequence enrichment consumables kits, provide a complete workflow solution for easy implementation in the laboratory.

                The company also announced that comprehensive training and support services are available to maximize the operating performance of the solution.

                "This commercialization step is the culmination of a rigorous Early Access Partner program that involved some of the world's leading genomic research institutions," said McNary. "These organizations see the potential of our Sequence Enrichment Solution to enhance the performance of their next-generation sequencing platforms and accelerate their discovery process."

                RainDance also is presenting a workshop, "Enrichment of Genomic Loci for Targeted Sequencing Applications," at the AGBT Conference on February 6 to explain the application and benefits of its new technology in genomics research.

                For sales information, contact [email protected] or call 781-861-6300. The company said the Sequence Enrichment Solution will be available for purchase in Europe later this year.

                  Also, Agilent's paper just came out a few days ago. Looks interesting.

                    Capacity of Raindance

                    Which targeted regions of interest can you amplify with the Raindance technology? Is it possible to enrich 1Mb - 5Mb regions?

                      Apparently it's possible to enrich up to ~4.6Mb. You do, however need to buy the equipment - and that's quite expensive. I don't think it's available as a service just now. From what I hear it is going to be an expensive approach to targeted-seq.

                        Hello,

                        1. RainDance Technologies supply a system at $225,000 excluding local taxes , insurance and delivery charges

                        2. RainDance Technologies supply the reagents, chips and consumables at a ‘total cost per sample’ for sequence enrichment as follows;

                        a. 384 Amplicon library : $600/sample

                        b. 1,536 Amplicon library : $900/sample

                        c. 4,000 Amplicon library : $1,200/sample

                        d. This is the same cost structure for custom libraries or our standard amplicon libraries

                        3. RainDance Technologies has a Service Provider in the USA who will be receiving their system shortly.

                        4. They plan to have a European Service Provider engaged in this quarter of 2009

                        Wait and see...

                          targeted resequencing

                          Our group at Stanford has developed a targeted genomic circularization approach which is a solution based method. We have applied for resequencing targets up to ~900 kb and have designed an "exome" design set of oligos that cover the CCDS gene annotation.

                          Cost per sample depends on number of oligos which based on a traditional synthesis lasts >1000 samples. Estimate for targeting assay will be very (<50$) if one amortizes based on several hundred samples.

                          Hope to release to the biomedical research community soon.

                            we are using agilent sureselect enrichment to capture sheared dna (200bp, covaris) for resequencing on an illumina platform. does anyone have experience pooling samples before hybridization with the rna library?

                              Our lab is preparing to set up a similar seq cap pipeline. I'd be grateful to hear any pros/cons or other thoughts you (or anyone else!) have on this system.

                                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...

                                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...
