  • Ion Torrent Metagenomics flows

    Hello all, I've been looking for optimalization of my metagenomics sequencing process.
    I usually use 316chip on PGM and as default in IonTorrent 16S metagenomics workflow inumber of flows is setted to 850. It results with half of volume of every dNTP left in bottles and I'm afraid of runnning next sequencing without replacement them to new. It is really increasing my sequencing cost because I need to use new inicialization chemistry for each sequencing. I use about 400 bp length fragments but in real its average is about 250 bp(as I can see in the end sequencing summary). Can I decrease number of flows to maybe about 650 to reach two sequencing processes with one inicialization?

    2x 650 is maximum you can get away with.

    With 650 flows, estimate is that mean read length is 346, and 90% of reads should make it to 325.

      Recent Advances in Sequencing Analysis Tools
      by seqadmin


      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...

      Essential Discoveries and Tools in Epitranscriptomics
      by seqadmin




      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...
