In this video, an Illumina Field Applications Scientist discusses the key steps in the Nextera library preparation process and provides some tips and tricks on how to achieve optimal results. Note that the best practices presented in this video do not apply to the Nextera™ DNA Flex Library Prep Kit.
This course provides an introduction to Illumina Experiment Manager, and shows you the steps to create sample plates and sample sheets.
Recorded Webinar (October 2021) | Does my library look good to sequence? What’s that peak? This webinar will address how to use the Agilent BioAnalyzer to check library quality prior to sequencing, and troubleshoot sample preparation. This webinar is geared toward new and intermediate users, and will cover how to identify features of an ideal library trace, recognize potential issues, and prevent potential issues.
After completing this course, you will be able to identify the Nextera Rapid Capture Enrichment kits, choose your Nextera Rapid Capture Enrichment Product, identify how the protocol works, describe what is needed to successfully complete the protocol, define the various steps in the Sample Preparation workflow, and analyze Nextera Capture Enrichment data.
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.
