Resequencing candidate genes for male spermatogenic impairment

Dataset ID Technology Samples
EGAD00001006784 Illumina MiSeq 480

Dataset Description

This study aims to identify novel candidate variants from human Y-chromosomal genes DAZ, BPY2 and CDY1/2 by resequencing the coding regions of these genes from male patients with spermatogenic impairment. The coding regions of the genes plus a selection of phylogenetically informative Y-chromosomal markers have been amplified by standard PCR, amplicon lengths range from 178 to 486 bp. Amplicons were quantified by gel electrophoresis and pooled in approx. equimolar concentrations per patient. For each of the 480 submitted samples, approx. 1 microgram of amplified DNA pool was provided in a total volume of 120 microlitres. The samples were indexed and libraries prepared for PE250bp Illumina MiSeq runs. This data is part of a pre-publication release.
