Default Pe150+8(+8?)+150

Hi,
We have prepared a bunch of libraries with the Nextera Flex kit, with the use of the index plate (Nextera™ DNA CD Indexes (96 Indexes, 96 Samples). Now we are sending pooled libraries off to be sequences and we have to select if we want PE150+8+150 or PE150+8+8+150. Unfortunately there is no further information on what this means. Does anyone know? I would think the double 8 because of dual indexing but would appreciate any input

Hello mdegraaf,

You are correct with your assumption. The PE 8 + 8 option refers to a dual indexing strategy while the PE 8 option will just be a single indexing approach. However, if you are still concerned I would advise getting in contact with the sequencing provider and they can put your mind at ease fairly quickly.

Hope this helps!

Thank you for your answer. I did contact the provider but haven't heard back from them yet.

mdegraaf,

You didn't say how many libraries you pooled. If it is more than 12 then it is inevitable that you have more than one library sharing a common i7 index sequence. i7 is the first of the two index sequenced or the ONLY index sequenced if you choose PE150+8+150. You can not use this format if any i7 index is repeated in your pool, you must then use PE150+8+8+150. Honestly I'd always choose the dual index sequencing format; what would be the downside to it?
