Nucl. Acids Res. 39, e81. A method for counting PCR template molecules with application to next-generation sequencing. 2011

Casbon, J.A., Osborne, R.J., Brenner, S. and Lichtenstein, C.P.

Notes: DNA templates are often amplified by PCR during library generation prior to next-generation sequencing, but amplification can introduce biases and duplications that are not easily corrected. In this paper, the authors developed a simple method to count the number of input template molecules to reduce these PCR-related problems: The ligation of a degenerate base region to all fragments during library creation. To evaluate their approach to correct for biases and duplications, the authors created a library using Human Genomic DNA, amplified the library by inverse PCR using the GoTaq® Hot Start Polymerase and 1X Colorless GoTaq® Flexi Buffer, sequenced the resulting DNA fragments and assessed the quality of the next-generation sequencing data.

J. Exp. Bot. 60, 1409-25. A strong effect of growth medium and organ type on the identification of QTLs for phytate and mineral concentrations in three Arabidopsis thaliana RIL populations. 2009

Ghandilyan, A., Ilk, N., Hanhart, C., Mbengue, M., Barboza, L., Schat, H., Koornneef, M., El-Lithy, M., Vreugdenhil, D., Reymond, M. and Aarts, M.G.

Notes: Mineral accumulation was studied in Arabidopsis thaliana comparing loci involved with growing in soil versus hydroponics. An F2 population derived from a cross between Landsberg erecta (Ler; maternal parent) and Eringsboda-1 (Eri-1; paternal parent) was propagated by single seed descent for nine successive generations in soil.
The flower buds of three plants per line were collected, and the DNA extracted using the Wizard® Magnetic 96 DNA Plant System and used for genotyping with 90 amplified fragment length polymorphism PCR (AFLP) and 39 single sequence length polymorphisms (SSLP) markers to build a genetic map of quantitative trait loci (QTL).

Proc. Natl. Acad. Sci. USA 106, 5258–63. Genomic identification in the historical case of the Nicholas II royal family. 2009

Rogaev, E.I., Grigorenko, A.P., Moliaka, Y.K., Faskhutdinova, G., Goltsov, A., Lahti, A., Hildebrandt, C., Kittler, E.L. and Morozova, I.

Notes: In 1991, the remains of murdered Emperor Nicholas II, Empress Alexandra and three of their five children were discovered. Until recently, the remains of the two other children were never found. In July of 2007 human bone fragments were discovered at a second grave site in the Ural region of Russia. The authors performed DNA typing to determine if these remains were those of the two missing children. Bone fragments and teeth were subjected to mitochondrial and nuclear DNA typing. DNA was quantitated using the Plexor® HY System. Nuclear DNA analysis was performed, in part, using the PowerPlex® S5 System. A comparison of mitochondrial DNA sequences from remains in the first and second graves and from maternal reference samples confirmed that the remains constituted a family with a "Queen Victoria" mitotype (Empress Alexandra was the granddaughter of Queen Victoria). Y-STR analysis of both sets of remains was performed, and the results confirmed that the Y-STR haplotypes of the two sets of male remains matched, and this haplotype matched that of several descendants from an unbroken paternal lineage of Nicholas I, father of Nicholas II. The mitochondrial and Y-STR haplotypes and autosomal STR profile also matched those obtained from a bloodstained shirt that Nicholas II was wearing during an assassination attempt. (3967)

Clin. Chem. 55, 748–56. Coamplification at lower denaturation temperature-PCR increases mutation-detection selectivity of TaqMan-based real-time PCR. 2009

Li, J., Wang, L., Jänne, P.A. and Makrigiorgos, GM.

Notes: The authors describe a new form of PCR, co-amplification at lower denaturation temperature PCR (COLD-PCR), to detect low-level somatic mutations. This technique is based on the facts that a) each DNA sequence has a critical denaturation temperature (Tc), which is lower than the melting temperature (Tm) and below which PCR efficiency decreases dramatically and b) Tc depends on DNA sequence. The authors used GoTaq® Flexi DNA Polymerase and mutation-specific TaqMan® probes for tumor protein 53 (TP53) and epidermal growth factor receptor (EGFR) to detect low-level somatic mutations in a mixture of wildtype and mutant DNAs. Conventional TaqMan® technology can detect mutant alleles at an abundance of 10–20% of that of the wildtype allele; using COLD-PCR the authors were able to increase selectivity 15- to 30-fold, detecting as little as 0.8% mutuant alleles.

Forensic Sci. Int. Genet. 2, 301–309. Real-time forensic DNA analysis at a crime scene using a portable microchip analyzer. 2008

Liu, P. Yeung, S.H.I., Crenshaw, K.A., Crouse, C.A., Scherer, J.R. and Mathies, R.A.

Notes: This paper describes analysis of DNA samples at a mock crime scene using automated DNA purification followed by STR analysis on a portable microchip system. The mock crime scene was created using "victim" and "suspect" blood stains prepared by spotting 3µl of liquid blood onto paper towels and a cloth shirt. The samples were allowed to dry overnight before placement at the crime scene. Samples were processed at the scene using the Maxwell® 16 Instrument and DNA IQ™ Casework Sample Kit for DNA extraction, and a microchip analyzer to perform amplification and STR analysis. The 9-plex autosomal STR typing system used in the microchip system included primer sequences from the PowerPlex® 16 System (D3S1358, THO1, D21S11, D5S818, D13S317, D7S820, vWA and D8S1179) and amelogenin for sex identification. DNA purification from suspect samples was completed in 2 hours, and subsequent STR analysis and generation of a "suspect" DNA profile took a further 3 hours. The entire process from sample collection to generation of a CODIS "hit" took 6 hours. (3922)

Forensic Sci. Int. 48, 478–85. Highly effective DNA extraction method for nuclear short tandem repeat testing of skeletal remains from mass graves. 2007

Davoren, J., Vanek, D., Konjhodzic, R., Crews, J., Huffine, E. and Parsons, T.J.

Notes: The authors compared two DNA extraction methods: the International Commission on Missing Persons silica method and the standard phenol:chloroform method to determine the preferred method for extraction of DNA from skeletal remains. The efficacy of DNA extraction was measured by real-time PCR to quantify DNA and to check for the presence of PCR inhibitors, and by amplification with the PowerPlex® 16 System. DNA was extracted from processed bone powder, and 10µl of the final extract was amplified using the PowerPlex® 16 System and GeneAmp® PCR System 9700 according to the manufacturer's recommendations, except that the extension time was doubled from 30 seconds to 60 seconds for the first 10 cycles and from 45 seconds to 90 seconds for the next 22 cycles. Amplified products were detected using the ABI PRISM® 3100 Genetic Analyzer. The authors concluded that the silica-based method gave better results in autosomal STR typing than the organic extraction method. (3818)

J. Clin. Microbiol. 45, 3316-3322. Evaluation the Invader Assay with the BACTEC MGIT 960 System for prompt isolation and identification of Mycobacteria from clinical specimens. 2007

Ichimura, S., Nagano, M., Ito, N., Shimojima, M., Egashira, T., Miyamoto, C., Ohkusu, K., and Ezaki, T.

Notes: These authors compared standard culture conditions, DNA isolation and analysis (e.g, sequencing) with a liquid culture, DNA isolation and a homogeneous fluorescent detection system for identifying mycobacterial species. The standard DNA extraction began with a loopful (3–mm3 sphere) of bacterial colony grown on Ogawa slants that used glass beads to mechanically disrupt the cells. The resulting lysate was extracted using phenol/chloroform, and DNA purified from the aqueous phase using a robotic liquid handler AGE-96 (Biotec) and the MagneSil® Blood Genomic, Max Yield System. The DNA extractions were used in PCR and sequencing reactions. (3700)

Croat. Med. J. 48, 513–519. DNA identification of skeletal remains from the World War II mass graves uncovered in Slovenia. 2007

Marjanovic, D., Durmic-Pasic, A., Bakal, N., Haveric, S., Kalamujic, B., Kovacevic, L., Ramic, J., Pojskic, N., Skaro, V., Projic, P., Bajrovic, K., Hadziselimovic, R., Drobnic, K., Huffine, E., Davoren, J. and Primorac, D.

Notes: The authors used the PowerPlex® 16 System to perform DNA typing of 27 sets of World War II skeletal remains found in two mass graves in Slovenia. Each bone sample was sanded to remove potential contaminants from exterior surfaces, then washed and air-dried. The same procedure was used to process teeth, except that the teeth were not sanded. DNA was isolated from the bone powder using organic extraction, then quantified. DNA was amplified using the PowerPlex® 16 System as per the manufacturer's recommendations; for samples with small amounts of DNA, the number of cycles was increased to 32 and the elongation time extended to 90 seconds. Fifteen sets of remains yielded full profiles, and 12 sets yielded partial profiles, with the least successful profile including 13 loci. DNA was also extracted and amplified from 69 reference buccal swab samples from potential relatives. (3817)

J. Clin. Invest. 117, 3042–3048. HLA class I polymorphisms are associated with development of infectious mononucleosis upon primary EBV infection. 2007

McAulay, K.A., Higgins, C.D., Macsween, K.F., Lake, A., Jarrett, R.F., Robertson, F.L., Williams, H. and Crawford, D.H.

Notes: The authors examined whether genetic differences at the HLA class I locus affect development of Epstein Barr Virus-associated diseases. Peripheral blood mononuclear cells were isolated from asymptomatic EBV-seropositive and seronegative individuals and patients with acute infectious mononucleosis. DNA was isolated, and genotypes at two HLA class I loci and one HLA class III locus, as a control, were determined by PCR. The 10µl PCRs contained 25ng of DNA, 1X GoTaq® Flexi Reaction Buffer, 2.5mM MgCl2, 200µM dNTP, 0.5 units of GoTaq® Flexi DNA Polymerase and 25µM of forward and reverse primer, one of which was labeled with 6-FAM fluorescent dye. The results show that HLA class I polymorphisms might predispose people to develop infectious mononucleosis upon EBV infection. (3712)
