General description

GenomePlex® Complete Whole Genome Amplification Kit utilizes a proprietary technology based on random fragmentation of genomic DNA and conversion of the resulting small fragments to PCR-amplifiable library molecules flanked by universal priming sites. WGA is achieved by PCR amplification of the library molecules using universal oligonucleotide primers. It contains everything required for whole genome amplification including an optimized enzyme, WGA DNA Polymerase. It can be used in several applications and is suitable for use with purified genomic DNA from a variety of sources including blood cards, whole blood, buccal swabs, soil, plant, and serum. It allows the researcher to generate a representative, ~500-fold amplification of genomic DNA.

Application

GenomePlex® Complete Whole Genome Amplification (WGA) Kit has been used in the amplification of DNA. This kit is also suitable for use with downstream applications including:
  • microarray analysis
  • SNP analysis
  • STR analysis
  • DNA archiving

Features and Benefits

  • Higher yield from minimal template: Amplification of nanogram amounts of genomic DNA to microgram yields (around 10 μg) in less than about three hoursrs
  • Nanograms of samples can be preserved at –20 °C for future use
  • Choose from a variety of DNA sources: whole blood, buccal swab, blood card, plant, soil, & formalin-fixed paraffin-embedded tissue (FFPE)
  • Whole-genome amplification (WGA) DNA polymerase increases the amplification accuracy
  • Whole-genome representation with no detectable allele bias
  • Compatible with many downstream applications such as TaqMan® assays, single nucleotide polymorphism (SNP) analysis, comparative genomic hybridization (CGH) analysis

Other Notes

The sequences of the universal primers provided in this kit are considered proprietary.

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.

Advances in single-cell WGA have enabled the contribution of genomics to single-cell biology. Whole-genome amplification (WGA) is described as a non-specific amplification that affords a product completely representative of the initial starting material.

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.).

Protocols

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.

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.

Whole genome amplification (WGA) of plasma and serum DNA presents a unique challenge due to the small amount of nucleic acid in such samples.
