|20130316913||Isolation of CpG Islands by Thermal Segregation and Enzymatic Selection-Amplification Method - The present invention concerns isolation, library preparation and selective amplification from a compositionally heterogeneous pool of DNA fragments of a fraction of molecules, such as those originating from promoter CpG islands and characterized by a high GC content. In particular, the process utilizes a heat-induced segregation of DNA molecules into GC-poor, single-stranded molecule fractions and GC-rich, double-stranded molecule fractions, with subsequent enzymatic conversion of the GC-rich, double-stranded DNA molecules into a library, and, optionally, amplification. In specific embodiments, the isolation process is used to generate promoter-enriched genomic and methylome libraries for research and diagnostic applications, for example.||11-28-2013|
|20130309668||METHODS AND COMPOSITIONS FOR GENERATING AND AMPLIFYING DNA LIBRARIES FOR SENSITIVE DETECTION AND ANALYSIS OF DNA METHYLATION - The present invention regards a variety of methods and compositions for obtaining epigenetic information, such as DNA methylation patterns, through the preparation, amplification and analysis of Methylome libraries. In particular, the method employs preparation of a DNA molecule by digesting the DNA molecule with at least one methylation-sensitive restriction enzyme; incorporating a nucleic acid molecule into at least some of the digested DNA molecules by either (1) incorporating at least one primer from a plurality of primers that have a 5′ constant sequence and a 3′ variable sequence, wherein the primers are substantially non-self-complementary and substantially non-complementary to other primers in the plurality; or (2) incorporating an oligonucleotide having an inverted repeat and a loop under conditions wherein the oligonucleotide becomes blunt-end ligated to one strand of the digested DNA molecule, followed by polymerization from a 3′ hydroxyl group present in a nick in the oligonucleotide-linked molecule; and amplifying one or more of the DNA molecules||11-21-2013|
|20120142060||Compositions and Methods for Processing and Amplification of DNA, Including Using Multiple Enzymes in a Single Reaction - The present invention concerns preparation of DNA molecules, such as a library, using a stem-loop oligonucleotide. In particular embodiments, the invention employs a single reaction mixture and conditions. In particular, at least part of the inverted palindrome is removed during the preparation of the molecules to facilitate amplification of the molecules. Thus, in specific embodiments, the DNA molecules are suitable for amplification and are not hindered by the presence of the palindrome.||06-07-2012|

|20100145037||DNA AMPLIFICATION AND SEQUENCING USING DNA MOLECULES GENERATED BY RANDOM FRAGMENTATION - The present invention is directed to methods to prepare a DNA molecule or a plurality of DNA molecules by random fragmentation. In some embodiments, the present invention regards preparing a template for DNA sequencing by random fragmentation. In specific embodiments, the random fragmentation comprises chemical fragmentation, mechanical fragmentation, or enzymatic fragmentation. In further specific embodiments, a universal sequence is attached to the 3′ end of the DNA fragments, such as by ligation of an adaptor sequence or by homopolymeric tailing with terminal deoxynucleotidyltransferase. In other embodiments, a library is prepared with methods of the present invention.||06-10-2010|
