Question ATAC-seq (Read1/Read2/Index Sequencing Primers?)


We recently prepared samples for ATAC-seq using primers from the Buenrostro et al paper.


Does anyone know the Read1/Read2/Index primers to use to read out sequences from ATAC-libraries on the Illumina sequencer (for paired end sequencing)? Are these custom primers?

I was told to use Nextera sequencing primers, but I can't figure out how these work for ATAC-libraries. Maybe I have the wrong sequences downloaded?

Any help would be greatly appreciated!

Default ATAC sequencing primers

if you're sequencing on Illuminas NextSeq, their sequencing kits higher than v2 include Nextera primers.
I presume the most recent versions of HiSeq kits should be the same, though I've yet to sequence with them, so check with Illumina tech support or whomever you'll be sequencing with to be sure.
If not, or you're planning to use an older chemistry version kit, the Nextera kit should have come with indexing primers. Check with Illumina's web site for correct dilutions to add, or your sequencing service provider should be able to help. Happy sequencing!
