  • Good Beads / Best Beads

    We are running a WT Paired End analysis on SOLiD 5500XL. We noticed that the percent of Fraction of Good/Best Beads drops dramatically after each cycle (from 80% to ~ 50%). It should be normal but I would like to know the optimal range for a good run.
    Any suggestions??
    Attached the box plot of one lane.
    Thanks

    We have also done a WT run and are experiencing the same case (starts from around 70 and drops till 30%). I have attached the attached the box plots for both the F5 and the F3 tag. Also when viewing the run in real time the height of the bars decreases with each ligation. Any suggestions ??

    Thanks

      The paired end chemistry requires a ligation step which is not as efficient. It's normal to see F5 dropping off quicker than F3. This is/was the cause of many complaints from Solid/5500 users. Life Tech released a number of technical "fixes" to improve the situation but fundamentally F5 never going to be as good as F3.
      My take is both these plots are normal performance for the instrument/chemistry.

        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 on Modified Bases...

        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...
