  • Publication number: 20230287476
    Abstract: Degradable polyester bead are described comprising a plurality of transposome complexes immobilized to the surface thereof, wherein each transposome complex comprises a transposase bound to a first polynucleotide and a second polynucleotide, wherein the first polynucleotide comprises a 3? portion comprising a transposon end sequence and a tag, and the second polynucleotide comprises a 5? portion that is complementary to and hybridized to the transposon end sequence, and wherein the polyester bead has a melting point of from 50° C. to 65° C. Flow cells and methods related to these polyester beads are described. Also described herein are compositions comprising a bead and at least one nanoparticle and methods of use of such compositions comprising transposome complexes immobilized to nanoparticles.

  • Publication number: 20210187469
    Abstract: Provided is a nanoparticle including a scaffold, a single template site for bonding a template polynucleotide to the scaffold, and a plurality of accessory sites for bonding accessory oligonucleotides to the scaffold, wherein the scaffold is selected from one or more scaffold DNA molecules and one or more scaffold polypeptides, the single template site for bonding a template polynucleotide to the scaffold is selected from a covalent template bonding site and a noncovalent template bonding site and the plurality of accessory sites for bonding accessory oligonucleotides to the scaffold are selected from covalent accessory oligonucleotide bonding sites and noncovalent accessory oligonucleotide bonding sites. Also provided are methods of using the nanoparticle.
