  • Including virus samples in an exome run?

    Hi all,

    We have three viruses (1.3 MB in total) that we would like to sequence. They are so small that it would be really expensive to run an emulsion with these alone, so i am wondering whether it is possible to include them in our next exome run.

    In an exome run, we barcode and pool 6 exomes (50 MB). The pool is then split on 6 lanes. We would aim for similar coverage for both exomes and viruses, and would therefore add much less of the virus libraries to the resulting ePCR pool.

    - Would this be a problem in the downstream sequencing - that three of the barcodes have much lower representation than the remaining 6?

    - Colour balance should be taken care of by the exomes, or not?

    - The viruses should theoretically only steal 1-2% of the reads from the exomes, but would the pooling compromise the exome sequences in any way?

    We are really grateful for any thoughts and/or previous experience!

    Should be ok. We do that sometimes to check if a experiment worked before we sequence a whole lane, never had problems.

      We've done something similar with Yeast (spiking it into an E120)

      No the low % of the 3 virus barcodes does not cause you trouble
      Yes the colour balance should be unaffected
      We don't see the pooling of the exomes being affected however we have found it very difficult to get good balance beween the low % samples

      good luck

        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...
