Methods


Please let if you find any errors, or have suggestions on how we can improve the protocols below.

Laboratory protocols

DNA extraction

      Easily automatable procedure for DNA extraction.

      Useful for large-insert libraries for de novo genome sequencing.


Sequencing library preparation

      This protocol can be used for degraded DNA

      Related to the EcoRI RAD-tag protocol above, but used for whole genome shotgun sequencing.

Under active development (ask for to view)

High-throughput protocol related to the EcoRI RAD-tag procedure above. Optimized for processing 96 samples at one using a liquid handling robot.

Modification of original RAD-tag protocol to reduce error and bias due to PCR amplification.


General protocols

Useful for processing large numbers of samples at once.

Most accurate measure of overall dsDNA concentration.
