  • Poor DNA prep

    Hi. I have some samples from another lab that were prepped with the Qiagen kit. All I have is a limited amount of DNA, & the DNA is just okay quality. I did a clean up and ran them on the Miseq. Some of the sequencing quality is poor. Any recommendations for improving the data quality on the analysis side? Or even something to do if I redo the library prep? Thanks! The samples I prepped ran fine, so it isn’t a run issue.

    Could you let us know what specific problems you see with the data (and the DNA samples?)?

      What library prep tools are at your disposal? I'd suggest Nextera XT for low-concentration samples. You could also reamplify your libraries prior to normalization. If your samples are low on concentration, try vacuum concentration.

        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
