Tuesday 11/24/15

Finished gel extraction of samples B3-C4 from 2bRAD Library 1 started on 11/23/15 following the protocol described in that post.

Did the PCR of the rest of Library 1 (B5-C12) with the new Taq. There is no H9, however (due to how I labelled on the spreadsheet).

First made more Lib 1 and Lib 2 primer stock:

  • 10 uL stock + 90 uL NFW = 10 uM

PCR master mix. Added 3.75 of each 1 uM barcode (HT and BC) to wells.

11/21/15 and 11/22/15

Saturday 11/21/15

Added 8 uL of nuclease free water to Libraries 2, 3, and 4. Put in 4degC.

Sunday 11/22/15

Set up a PCR of wells H1-B4 of Library 1 (did not have enough Taq to do any more so ordered more Q5 High-Fidelity Taq). As the 100 uL PCR reactions recommended in the Meyer 2bRAD protocol always overfill my gel wells, I rescaled the recipe to be 77.75 uL reactions (50 uL ligation product + 3.75uL each barcode + 20.25 uL master mix).

First, made new working stocks of primers:

  • Made 10 uM stock of Lib 1 and Lib 2
    • 5 uL stock + 45 uL NFW
  • Made 1 uM stock of BC11, BC12, HT2, HT3, HT4, HT5, HT6, HT7, HT8
    • 1 sock + 99 NFW

Added 3.75 uL of each barcode (this took a lot of time. I marked on the datasheet as I went to make sure I added barcodes to each well.)

Made a large gel with 24 wells and a regular gel with 8 wells. The top part of the large well broke so was only able to run 22 of the 31 PCRs (H1-C3). I put the gel slices in 1.5mL tubes with 40 uL of NFW and left overnight in the fridge.

Did the AlfI digestion of libraries 2, 3, and 4.

  • Left in 60degC water bath for 3 hours
  • Eluted 50 uL then 100 uL

PCR for 2b-RAD MiSeq run

Used 10 samples from 9/28/15 digestion and ligation. Numbers in parentheses are so I know which tube from the ligation each sample is in.

Run out gel of 2b-RAD PCR product
This time, set up a medium gel for 8 of the samples and a small gel for the other 2. Made a 2% TAE gel, and after running it at 110V for 1 hour let the gels soak in water with 6 uL of EtBr to increase staining. PCR used 19 cycles.

I think I should make sure to mix in the EtBr when doing the post staining as that is likely why there are bright white sections on the gels. It was still much easier to see the bands though. Cut out the bands and left them in 1.5 mL tubes in 4degC for gel extraction on Friday.

Lab Work

Set up a test PCR to determine the optimum # of cycles. You want to identify the minimum number of cycles required for a visible product at 166 bp. I chose 4 of the samples and tested them at 12, 17, 22, & 27 cycles as recommend in the protocol.

  • Made 100 uM stock of new ILL-Lib2 adaptor
  • Made 10 uM stocks of ILL-Lib1 and ILL-Lib2 primers
    • 1.5 stock + 13.5 uL NFW
  • Made 1 uM stocks of HT1 and BC1

Programed PCR in thermocyclers 4,5,6. Called 2b12, 2b17, 2b22, and 2b27.

It looks like 22 cycles is best, and worked on all samples so will be using that in the preparatory scale.

Ethanol precipitation

  • Set up an ethanol precipitation of all the broodstock samples I’ve extracted so far, as well as repeats of of the 4 samples used in the test scale PCR:
