whole genome amplification: suitable
10 - Combustible liquids
Functionally, WGA1 and WGA2 kits are identical. The only difference between the two kits is that WGA2 is supplied with the WGA polymerase.
The kit works best for fragments 400 bp and larger. When starting with fragmented DNA, we recommend: (1) skipping the fragmentation heat step, although the buffer should be added, and (2) increasing the PCR cycles from 14 to 20.
Using this kit to amplify DNA from a single cell is not recommended. We recommend using the GenomePlex Single Cell WGA Kit (WGA4) for such application. WGA4 was developed for use with single cells and includes an optimized cell lysis protocol which has been incorporated into the fragmentation step.
When starting with single stranded starting materials, we recommend (1) skipping the fragmentation heat step, although the buffer should be added and (2) increasing the PCR cycles from 14 to 20. Note that if the ssDNA is actually cDNA from polyadenylated RNA, the kit will likely not give good representation of the input material, as the poly(T) ends constitute a large, non-random fraction.
WGA polymerase is compatible with TA cloning with the following alteration to the PCR step: Be sure to include a 7 to 30 minute extension at 72°C after the last cycle to ensure that all PCR products are full length and 3´ adenylated.

In recent years, array-based Comparative Genomic Hybridization (aCGH) has been refined to determine chromosomal changes at progressively higher resolutions. This evolving technology is, however, somewhat hampered by the large DNA input requirement—a minimum of 150,000 copies of a human genome, or 0.5 μg, are generally needed per sample to process one CGH array.
Genomic DNA from soil samples can be easily damaged by nucleases and contaminating debris resulting in low DNA yields. As a result, the researcher’s ability to perform downstream analysis may be compromised. After isolating DNA from the soil sample, the GenomePlex® Whole Genome Amplification Protocol is followed
Whole Genome Amplification can be performed on DNA extracted in many ways. We offer many products for DNA extraction, including the GenElute™ Blood Genomic DNA Kit, GenElute Mammalian Genomic DNA Miniprep Kit and the GenElute Plant Genomic DNA M iniprep.
Whole genome amplification (WGA) of plasma and serum DNA presents a unique challenge due to the small amount of nucleic acid in such samples.
GenomePlex® Whole Genome Amplification is the method of extracting DNA from the animal sample. GenomePlex® products have been used to amplify genomic DNA from chicken, porcine, bovine, fish, and shrimp source.

GenomePlex® Whole Genome Amplification Kit: A High-Throughput Approach for Rapidly Amplifying Genomic DNA from a Variety of Biological Materials
The assessment of DNA quality is a crucial first step in acquiring meaningful data from formalin-fixed paraffin-embedded (FFPE) tissues, and other sources of damaged DNA. Using intact genomic DNA is key for successful analysis of chromosomal aberrations (e.g. SNP analysis, LOH, aCGH, etc.).
