Fragment Analysis

Summary of fragment analysis results

  • Numbers indicate intensity of peak for each marker (or average of peaks, if heterozygous)
  • At bottom, indicates ratio of each lane
Blue - Scun7:Scun10:Scun16:Scun22 intensity
Green - Scun9:Scun15:Scun19 intensity

  • Here, average of intensity for column (rounded to nearest hundred), and ratio

Best conditions

  • Scun7_25_SYRa
Scun7 - 0.25 µL
Scun10 - 0.15 µL
Scun16 - 0.2 µL
Scun22 - 0.2 µL

  • Scun16_15_SYRa
Scun7 - 0.2 µL
Scun10 - 0.15 µL
Scun16 - 0.15 µL
Scun22 - 0.2 µL

  • Scun19_30_SYRb (but Scun19 usually did not amplify to detectable levels)
Scun9 - 0.3µL
Scun15 - 0.25 µL
Scun19 - 0.3 µL

Multiplexing and AutoDimer

  • Looked into whether there are tools available to check interactions between primers when multiplexing
  • Found AutoDimer by NIST (Butler 2004)
  • Ran SCOC primers, within each color lane, just out of curiosity
  • Only got one interaction at default settings (in the blue lane):
  • When threshold was decreased to 4, more interactions:
  • I think it's useful to decrease the threshold to 4 or 5 to have program spit out more interactions, and be able to decide for myself which ones I care about

Next Steps

  • optimize within yellow lane (Scun3, Scun11, sar80)
  • see if green and yellow can multiplex (same PCR conditions)
  • diversity panel on all lanes, and post-PCR mix
