Pyrosequencing Project and Sample Submission Requirements

Project Requirements

All requests for scientific and analytical work must be submitted through CSAS.  Please contact Kristen Pike for more information regarding submitting requests, costs, and additional sources of funding for your project.

Sample Requirements

The table below summarizes the minimum requirements for assay processing.  We recommend that samples be quantified via NanoDrop or PicoGreen prior to normalization and shipment to Laboratory of Molecular Technology.    Since efficient and reliable processing of your samples is important to us, we would appreciate if you could send us more volume and a higher concentration of sample as your specimen source allows.  This will enable proper sample QC and ensure that enough material is present even if evaporation occurs during shipment, or if it becomes necessary to repeat a reaction.

Description of Service Sample Type Min.Vol.(uL) Min. Conc. (ng/uL) Total DNA (ng) Format Comments
Optimizing PCR conditions per amplicon for snp genotyping (non-human) gDNA 10 10 100 Tube or Plate Required DNA amount is per amplicon to be assayed. Please provide control DNA .  Required product amount is per Pyrosequencing assay run of 50-60 bp within a 250 bp PCR product.
PCR & Pyrosequencing of gDNA for SNP detection (human) gDNA 5 10 50 Tube or Plate For optimization, commercial DNA will be used.  Required product amount is per Pyrosequencing assay run of 50-60 bp within a 250 bp PCR product.
Bisulfite Conversion of gDNA for % methylation detection by Pyrosequencing gDNA 10 10 250 Tube or Plate
100 ng is needed for bi-sulfite conversion.  Required product amount is per Pyrosequencing assay run of 50-60 bp within a 250 bp PCR product.
Bisulfite-converted DNA (non-human) Converted DNA 15 NA NA Tube or Plate
10 ul is needed for optimization of each PCR amplicon assay, and 5 ul is needed to process once the amplicon assay is optimized.  Required product amount is per Pyrosequencing assay run of 50-60 bp within a 250 bp PCR product.
