Frontiers | Free DNA and Metagenomics Analyses: Evaluation of Free DNA Inactivation Protocols for Shotgun Metagenomics Analysis of Human Biological Matrices

Introduction The advent of modern culture-independent bacterial DNA sequencing technologies allows to achieve an in-depth characterization of the microbial communities inhabiting the human and animal bodies as well as the microbial consortia residing in other environments (Browne et al., 2016; Milani et al., 2017). These innovative metagenomics approaches, such as…

Internal validation and improvement of mitochondrial genome sequencing using the Precision ID mtDNA Whole Genome Panel

With the recent advances in next-generation sequencing (NGS), mitochondrial whole-genome sequencing has begun to be applied to the field of the forensic biology as an alternative to the traditional Sanger-type sequencing (STS). However, experimental workflows, commercial solutions, and output data analysis must be strictly validated before being implemented into the…

How much starting library to use for Ion Torrent S5 sequencing?

For Ion Torrent S5 sequencing, the user guide for IonChef/S5 recommends 25-60pM of library for each chip, depending on chip type and library fragment size. Ref: assets.thermofisher.com/TFS-Assets/LSG/manuals/MAN0016854_510_520_530_Kit_Chef_UG.pdf (Page 26) I was just told to start with 30pM of library for 530chip, and then adjust from there by looking at the…

What is the difference between GRCh37 and hs37? And hg19?

This is what I have found so far. Please correct me if I am wrong. GRCh37 w/o patches includes the primary assembly (22 autosomal, X. Y, and non-chromosomal supecontigs) and alternate scaffolds, but not a reference mitogenome. Non-chromosomal supercontigs are the unlocalized and unplaced scaffolds. The rCRS reference mitogenome in…
