This library was prepared by following ABI's standard 2×25 mate-pair library preparation protocol. solid3_libprep_guide.pdf
Detailed notes of the protocol can be found in the following pdf: solid-mate-pair-notes.pdf
Extracted genomic DNA was sheared using a Hydroshear to an approximate size of 4-5kb. The shearing was done using Standard_Assembly, sc 15, 5 cycles for 150 µl total volume.
Total recovered DNA after hydroshear was 217 µl or 26 µg.
The DNA ends of sheared gDNA were blunt ended and phosphorylated using Epicentre's End-It DNA repair Kit. 217 µl of sheared gDNA was reacted in a total volume of 400 µl according to manufacturer's standards. The reaction was incubated for 30 minutes at room temperature.
