How Fingerprinting Helps In DNA Paternity Testing

This form of fingerprinting method is also known as DNA profiling. Using this technique, the individuals are identified on the basis of their unique DNA profiles. This DNA profiling is done by analyzing the VNTR sequences. It stands for variable number tandem repeats. This sequence is found to be different in individuals except in twins. As per the facts mentioned above, the DNA samples of the child will exhibit the similar VNTR loci as that of their parents. This fingerprinting helps in identifying that whether the known father of a child is genuinely his biological dad. In fact, it is [more...]

sequencing of short DNA fragments (40-240bp) - SEQanswers

Hello together, We would like to prepare barcoded fragment libraries of enzymatically digested genomic DNA. The fragment size range we are interested in is 40 to 240bp. We want to sequence 50bp using a SOLiD 4 machine. My questions are: 1) What will happen if e.g. a 40bp fragment is sequenced? Will sequencing continue into the internal adaptor? There are various blocking oligos in the sequencing kit, and I am not entirely sure about their purpose. If they block the complete internal adaptor sequence, does this mean that only 34bp will be sequenced (I believe the fluorescent oligos are [more...]

PLoS ONE: Analysis of Short Tandem Repeats by Parallel DNA Threading

Abstract TopThe majority of studies employing short tandem repeats (STRs) require investigation of several of these genetic markers. As such, we demonstrate the feasibility of the trinucleotide threading (TnT) approach for scalable analysis of STRs. The TnT method represents a parallel amplification alternative that addresses the obstacles associated with multiplex PCR. In this study, analysis of the STR fragments was performed with capillary gel electrophoresis; however, it should be possible to combine our approach with the massive 454 sequencing platform to considerably increase the [more...]

DNA method gives new perspective on the Mysteries of Nature

We demonstrate that this new approach enables the assignment of virtually all the generated DNA sequences to the correct source once sequencing anomalies are accounted for (miss-assignment rate less than 0.4%). Therefore, the method enables accurate sequencing and assignment of homologous DNA sequences from multiple sources in single high-throughput GS20 run. We observe a bias in the distribution of the differently tagged primers that is dependent on the 5' nucleotide of the tag. In particular, primers 5' labelled with a cytosine are heavily overrepresented among the final sequences, while [more...]

To develop a more sensitive test for DNA methylation, investigators employed a form of technology known as BEAMing (beads, emulsion, amplification, and magnetics). They performed PCR amplification of individual DNA fragments covalently linked to magnetic beads suspended in water-based nanoparticles immersed in oil droplets. The beads contained a DNA sequence specific for exon 1 of the vimentin gene, which is hypermethylated in colon cancer. Following PCR amplification, the beads were hybridized by means of fluorescent probes specific to the state of methylation and then sorted and analyzed by [more...]
