Overview

The Microarray and High Throughput Sequencing Group in Genomics.
The Microarray and High Throughput Sequencing Group in Genomics.

The Lewis-Sigler Institute for Integrative Genomics houses the Sequencing Core Facility which is operated in conjunction with the Microarray Core Facility and provides researchers with access to state of the art, high-throughput sequencing technologies. In addition, the core facility offers library preparation services, consultation on experimental design and data analysis. Collaborations on developing novel sequencing applications are also welcome. The Sequencing Core Facility works closely with the Research Computing Staff to provide researchers with computing power and consulting services to analyze the sequencing data.

The facility currently houses a state-of-the-art Illumina HiSeq 2500 and two Ion Torrent Personal Genome Machines.

What's New

Longer read length for Illumina HiSeq 2500 sequencer Rapid runs: up to 250nt for each read (2x250nt for pair-end reads), using the new HiSeq Rapid v2 sequencing reagent. The Rapid flowcell has 2 lanes, which can be loaded with either 1 or 2 library pools. Please inquire if you still need to run the 8-lane flowcells.

PacBio library preparation service is now available in the core facility, PacBio sequencing service is also accessible.
