Normalize eDNA to 10 ng/ul unless the extracted sample starts lower than this. Samples lower than 10 ng/ul enter the PCR reactions at their starting concentration. Samples are quantified via absorbance. These are used in the Hamilton Nimbus program “Normalization_Tracking” to transfer sample and TE into a new plate in a combined volume of 20 ul and concentration of 10 ng/ul. The program simply transfers 20 ul from one plate to the other for samples under 10 ng/ul.

Each 515F/806R and ITS1F/ITS2 were arrayed to create all 9216 possible MID pairings. The first MID array was a stamp of both plates (A1 in A1 for both plates) and was labeled 16S0A1 or ITS0A1. The second plate was a stamp of the reverse plate but the forward plate was rotated so that B1 went in A1, C1 in B1, D1 in C1, . . . , H12 in G12 and A1 in H12. This second plate was labeled 16S0B1 or ITS0B1 referring to the original position of the forward oligo plate MID that was located in A1 of the arrayed plate. This schema was continued around until 16S0H12 and ITS0H12 for 96 total MID plates for each locus.

Pool duplicates together.

Purify samples using modified manual AxyPrep MagBead PCR Clean-Up (GSAF uses AmpPure XP):

AmpPure XP PCR cleanup and AxyPrep MagBead have the exact same stock protocol!

Equilibrate Beads to room Temperature

Pool Duplicate PCR reactions (Transfer 15 ul of one replicate to the other)

Add 24 ul of MagBeads to each well; Pipette mix up and down 10 times.

Incubate at RT for 5 minutes

Secure plate on magnet plate; incubate at RT for 5 minutes (until wells are clear)

Remove 65 ul from each well; keep tips to left or right depending on the column to avoid bead pellet.

Add 100 ul Fresh 80% EtOH to each well. Incubate 30 seconds. Remove 100 ul from each well

Add 100 ul Fresh 80% EtOH to each well. Incubate 30 seconds. Remove 100 ul from each well

Reaspirate from each well to assure maximum EtOH removal

Allow plate to air dry for 7 minutes.

Remove sample plate from magnet plate.

Add 40 ul TE; pipette mix 10+ times. Incubate 2 minutes at RT.

Place sample plate back on magnet for 5 minutes or until all wells are cleared.

Transfer 40 ul to new plate. Pool resulting products.

Check Pool’s molar concentration via qPCR:

Complete Libraries are sent to the Genomic Sequencing and Analysis Facility at the University of Texas to be run on their NovaSeq 6000 using paired end 2x250 chemistry. It will be treated like a low diversity library with a likely 10% PhiX spike in.

Small format libraries may be run on our iSeq100 with a 10% PhiX spike-in after dilution to 60 pM.
