In this video, an Illumina Field Applications Scientist discusses what to expect during the pre-installation, shipping, and delivery stages. We’ll highlight important steps in the process and introduce you to available resources. Note that, depending on your region, the steps shown in this video may not apply to the iSeq 100 system.
This course provides an introduction to Illumina Experiment Manager, and shows you the steps to create sample plates and sample sheets.
This course identifies the items needed for the AmpliSeq for Illumina library prep protocol, introduces pool planning resources for a multiplexed amplicon run, demonstrates the steps in the library prep protocol, and lists best practices for the protocol.
This course describes the AmpliSeq for Illumina assay technology, lists the three types of panels, introduces the steps in the amplicon sequencing workflow, and lists the analysis options for amplicon sequencing data.
By the end of this course, you will be able to identify the Nextera DNA Flex kit, describe how the protocol works, identify what is needed to complete the protocol, and define the various steps in the library preparation workflow.
Learn about the benefits of instrument performance monitoring through Illumina Proactive, a service in which instrument performance data are sent to Illumina to enable proactive maintenance.
This video shares IT requirements for implementing Illumina Proactive, an instrument performance monitoring service provided by Illumina that can increase instrument uptime, improve operational efficiency, and reduce the risk of lost resources.
After completing this course you will be able to identify the MiSeq run setup options, describe how to prepare the MiSeq reagent cartridge and load libraries, and list the steps to start a sequencing run with MiSeq Control Software (MCS).
After completing this course you will be able to describe the lab environment required to use MiSeq, list key components of MiSeq, identify the network considerations for MiSeq, and list the user-supplied consumables required for running and maintaining MiSeq.
After completing this course you will be able to list two options for monitoring your MiSeq run, describe key metrics in MiSeq Control Software (MCS), and describe key metrics in Sequencing Analysis Viewer (SAV).
An Illumina Field Applications Scientist describes what it means to sequence through the insert of your prepared library. We look at Bioanalyzer traces to assess the range of insert sizes in a library.
This video shows you how to use Sequencing Analysis Viewer (SAV) plots to determine if your sequencing insert is too short. We also explore how to use the adaptertrimming.txt file on the MiSeq to diagnose short inserts.
This video provides an overview of overclustering and how it can impact your sequencing data. An Illumina Field Applications Scientist shows you how to use Sequencing Analysis Viewer (SAV) to look for common symptoms of an overclustered HiSeq or MiSeq flow cell.
After completing this course you will have an understanding of the demultiplexing and alignment processes and program interfaces that are common to all workflows in MiSeq Reporter. You will also be able to briefly describe the utility of the supported MiSeq Reporter workflows.
