Another Update on the Barcode Mis-Assignment Issue: Illumina’s White Paper

Illumina published a white paper today on the barcode mis-assignment issue (Illumina calls it somewhat euphemistically “barcode hopping”). In contrast to the Sinha et al. paper, which only presented data for libraries with NextSeq adapter sequences, the white paper shows that

Update on Barcode Mis-Assignment Issue

A “much-tweeted” manuscript was recently published on Biorxiv, investigating the barcode mis-assignment issues affecting HiSeq 3000, 4000, and HiSeq X, reported in our last newsletter.  Please see the manuscript here: Sinha et al. 2017  http://biorxiv.org/content/early/2017/04/09/125724 . As mentioned previously in our newsletter, the
