Instrumentation Sequencing: Considerations for Low Diversity Libraries

Low diversity libraries, such as those used for amplicon sequencing, can present challenges on Illumina sequencing systems and may skew software performance and data accuracy resulting in poor quality runs. This webinar is ideal for new and intermediate users interested in considerations for the sequencing of low diversity libraries and will cover the following topics:
-Understanding and visualizing base diversity in Sequencing Analysis Viewer (SAV)
-Strategies to optimize low diversity sequencing data
-% PhiX spike-in and cluster density recommendations for different sequencing platforms
-Overview of base calling and quality score calculations

Sample Preparation RNA-Seq Part II: Kits

Part 2 of a 4-part RNA-Seq webinar series.

Following RNA-Seq Part I, we will review sample preparation kit options for total RNA, mRNA, and targeted RNA sequencing projects. Great for both new and experienced users, we will assume a basic understanding of Illumina sequencing technology, although no knowledge of sample prep is required. In particular, we’ll discuss:
-How to identify which kit is right for your experiment
-What are the expected input and outputs
-Where to go for additional resources

Experimental Design Illumina Experiment Manager: Introduction to v1.15 (Asia Pacific - Japanese)

サンプルシート作成ツール:Illumina Experimental Manager(IEM)の使用方法-最新バージョンIEMv1.15のご紹介-

FASTQ files store biological sequence and quality information, and are key for downstream data analysis pipelines. Several steps are necessary during FASTQ generation to ensure optimal data analysis. This webinar is targeted at new and intermediate users including biologists intending to understand output of basic bioinformatics tools used for processing FASTQs.

MiSeqでのランを行う際には、Illumina Experimental Manager(IEM)を用いた csv 形式のサンプルシートの作成が必要となります。サンプルシートでの、シーケンスリード長、インデックスリードなどのシーケンス条件を設定、シーケンス後のMiSeq Reporterによる解析ワークフローの選択、サンプル情報の入力によりシーケンスランから解析までが自動的に実施されます。最新版のIEM v1.15では、Unique Dual Index (UD index)などの新しいインデックスも選択できるようになっています。本ウェビナーでは、IEMv1.15を用いたサンプルシートの作成方法について、ご紹介をいたします。Bring your questions to the discussion or send them in advance to techsupport@illumina.com
