Default Indexed libraries best pooling strategy

We recently sequenced 20 indexed libraries on one lane of Hi-Seq. Unfortunately, the pooling strategy we used based on bioanalyzer data was not even.

Any suggestion on the best pooling strategy to get uniform pool?

Quantitate your libraries by qPCR, not BioA.

Search the forum for threads addressing accurate library quantification. There are advantages and limits to each technique. For example, adapter dimer contamination can wreak havoc with qPCR measurements.

Hello spdinesh,
In our experience, it is best to use multiple quantification platforms and go from there (bioanalyzer, Qbit, nanodrop), while knowing that +/- 20% is expected from pooling. Even pipette error can make a difference when pooling at n=20 with dilutions.

What was the standard dev. seen from your libraries?
