Many next-generation sequencing applications use the Polymerase Chain Reaction, or PCR, for DNA amplification. This video presents best practices to minimize the potential for PCR contamination in your experiment.
Topics included in this course include the TruSeq DNA PCR-Free library prep protocol, what the protocol does, how the protocol works, what is needed to complete the protocol successfully, and the various steps in the workflow.
After completing this course you will understand best practices for all TruSeq Sample Preparation Kits including liquid handling, AMPure XP handling, avoiding cross-contamination, and temperature considerations. You will also learn about specific information about DNA and RNA best practices.
After completing this course you will understand what sample purification beads are, how the beads work, when the beads are used, what the size selection workflow is, and be able to list some best practices.
