Suggestions for pre-Library Prep QC on FFPE samples

We are running a pilot study on FFPE tissue for WGS.

Any suggestions on how to check the DNA before starting library construction?

Hyperprep on SciClone

We are running the Kapa Hyperprep on SciClone for the first time and are confused by the workbook.

Under post-ligation double sided SPRI what numbers do you enter? We ere thinking 0.4 and then a...

We always normalize based on total RNA. The transcript population will vary but will be proportional. Keeping the OD of the culture is less important(in my opinion) than starting with equal total...

If you have dbl-stranded cDNA you just use a genomic kit from here on out..

You will not get directionality but you still get only transcriptome data

It depends on whether you need both primers or if the "genomic" pool will interfere with your sequencing.

We use 15ul of 100uM primer in 3 ml of HT1 for HiSeq Rapid. We use .6ul of 100uM and...

Nothing specific to running them. It is all in the way the analysis is done.

I asked and it will not work due to the length of genomic.

The only thing that works consistently is old school Ethanol Precipitations.

10ng/ul for an RNAseq library is not low-it is in fact quite good.

What does your bioanalyzer trace show?

Yes-we run only single sided SPRI. It is mostly because you cannot control the shearing in ChIP so the sizes may be different. You don't want to lose any sites.

The Fluidigm C1 which is single cell cDNA uses 1/4 reactions so I believe it is tied to DNA/cDNA quantity. The only change in the 1/4 reaction is the first PCR step is 10 min instead of 5 min. I...

The lack of reproducibility has more to do with the BioRuptor itself than with the DNA type.

I know from a bad experience that old style SR libraries will not work on the MiSeq.

Only the older style (pre-TruSeq) Paired End work on the Miseq.

Usually if it won;t toggle it is because of an error in one lane.

If you can remove that error, even if it means losing that sample, you can recovere the rest of the run.

Are you having them do ribo reduction?

This trace looks as though they have already done ribosomal reduction in preparation for sequencing. Is that possible?

Since the P5 and P7 sites are what bind to the flow cell, I would assume that would interfere with binding. The P5/P7 sites bind to the oligos on the flow cell and they likely would not bind to it...

It is a valid way to make a library-especially if you do not have sufficent RNA to put into a protocol. The only disadvatage is that you lose stranded-ness.

New England BioLabs has good kits, small sizes and I don't think you need a methyl-seq kit but you might need a microbiome kit.

I would look into them. Their kits are Illumina sequencer compatible
