      • 15.0 uL Blunt/TA Ligase Master Mix
      • 2.5 uL P2 RAD adapter (5 uM)
      • 1.0 uL Ligation Enhancer
    • Incubation: on John Block B
      • 20 degrees for 15 minutes
  • Size selection
    • Add 16.5 uL water for a total of 100 uL
    • AMPure bead size selection:
      • 45 uL beads to remove large fragments
      • 25 uL beads to remove small fragments
      • 3 washes of 200 uL 80% EtOH
      • Elute in 20 uL LowTE
  • PCR amplification
    • Mix:
      • 5 uL DNA
      • 25 uL NEBNext High Fidelity 2x PCR Master Mix
      • 18 uL water
      • 1 uL P1 adapter primer (25 uM)
      • 1 uL P2 adapter primer (25 uM)
    • PCR cycle: on John Block B
      • 98 degrees for 30 seconds
      • 15 cycles of:
        • 98 degrees for 10 seconds
        • 65 degrees for 30 seconds
        • 72 degrees for 30 seconds
      • 72 degrees for 5 minutes


1) 1 μL Sunbird Plate 2 template, 2) 5 μL Sunbird Plate 2 PCR product
3) 1 μL Greenbul Plate 1 template, 4) 5 μL Greenbul Plate 1 PCR product
5) 1 μL Greenbul Plate 2 template, 6) 5 μL Greenbul Plate 2 PCR product

→ PCR products do not look 2x as bright as the template. No significant amplication.

Troubleshooting

  • Tried re-prep of leftover sheared DNA (Blunt End Repair → PCR), but no difference


  • Used old P1 primer in amplification


→ Works. Could mean that P1 adapter ligation failed and only fragments with P2 adapters on both ends are amplifying.


  • Start with leftover DNA from Greenbuls Plate 2 and re-shear to see if overshearing caused lack of P1 adapter to most fragments.

1) Pre-cleaned DNA (post-P1-ligation), 2) Cleaned DNA, 3) Sheared DNA

  • 1st shearing step looks good - proceed to Blunt End Repair → PCR

1) 1μL template, 2) 5μL PCR product
→ Still no amplification. Sonication is not the issue.


  • Test Sunbirds Plate 1 template and replicate PCR, and check if failing templates will amplify with only P2 Primer

1&2) Sunbirds Plate 1, 3&4) Greenbuls Plate 1 (from re-sheared template)
→ PCR with good template still works. P2 primer only does not work at all

Re-prep Greenbuls Plate 1 using leftover DNA from plate

2014-07-31:

  • Digestion: RADIGEST on Tony
  • Ligation: RADLIG on Tony
    • Used adapters from original Berkeley plate (undiluted)
  • Clean up
  • Sonication: 8 cycles of 15 seconds on, 90 seconds off, High Power


Do not have have gel image for 2nd shearing attempt (4 additional cycles), but looked better than first. Because final attempt with additional 2 cycles did not look right (more large fragments), decided to continue with subsequent steps to avoid further sonication problems.

  • End Repair: NEBENDRP on John Block B
  • P2 Ligation: NEBLIGAT on John Block B


2014-08-01:

  • Size Selection: 40μL beads to remove large fragments (decreased amount to reduce loss of DNA), 25μL to remove small
  • PCR: NEBPCR on John Block B

1μL template, 2μL 100bp ladder, 5μL PCR product
→Successful amplification!
