  • Miniseq run issues

    Hi,
    I am new to sequencing stuff by myself and till date I have ran at least 30 miniseq runs. Some runs were decent, but most of the runs over clustered in spite of quantifying libraries using NEB library quant kit. I make my own libraries using two sets of PCR and custom designed barcodes, purify and run bioanalyzer. Is there a way to troubleshoot what is exactly wrong? I did contact Illumina and they haven't given me a satisfactory answer ever. Any help would be appreciated.

    Puh... hard to say... MiniSeq as far as I know uses unpatterned flow cells so over clustering is definitely more of an issue then with patterned flow cells. Did you have a look at what was the difference in the decent runs and the over clustered ones? How do you determine loading concentration and what concentrations did you load? I guess you are aware of Illuminas Denature and Dilute Guide? Whats the average library size? What kind of libraries are you preparing? Do you see a difference with different library types (for example RNAseq vs WGS)?

      Hi tired_of_overclustering

      I've had to do quite a lot of troubleshooting with MiniSeq libraries so I can try to help!

      How are you purifying your libraries? And if you do a melt curve at the end of the qPCR, how does it look?

        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
