TUCF Genomics Services
Below are the list of services offered to researchers in getting started with NGS technology.
The HiSeq 2500 sequencing system offers unprecedented output and a breakthrough user experience.
Leveraging Illumina's proven and widely-adopted, reversible terminator-based sequencing by synthesis
chemistry in combination with innovative engineering, HiSeq 2500 delivers the industry's highest
sequencing output and fastest data generation rate. Human interaction design features and the easiest
sequencing workflow set a new standard for simplicity and user experience.
Featuring two run modes, rapid run and high output run mode, and the ability
to process one or two flow cells simultaneously. This provides a flexible and scalable platform
that supports the broadest range of applications and study sizes. No other system lets you perform
so many applications so quickly and easily. Choose between rapid run and high output modes offering
scalable output to fit your project needs.
Rapid run mode provides quick results.
Rapid run mode provides quick results, allows efficient processing of a limited number of samples,
and offers support of longer paired-end 150 base pair reads, which enable greater depth of coverage
and improved assembly for de novo applications.
High output mode is perfect for larger studies.
High output mode is perfect for larger studies with more samples or when the greatest depth of
coverage is required. High output mode allows you to batch process ~5× more samples than rapid
mode and to complete large projects in record time.
As the only personal sequencer capable of producing paired-end reads,
the MiSeq system puts the largest portfolio of sequencing applications at your fingertips.
Optimized sample preparation kits, push-button sequencing, and automated data analysis,
create the first truly end-to-end sequencing solution.
MiSeq is the only benchtop sequencer that can produce 2 x 250 paired-end reads and up
to 8.5 Gb of data in a single run. Allowing you to assemble small genomes or target variants
with unmatched accuracy, especially within homopolymer regions. Process more samples in less
time. Generate higher read depths to get greater precision for variant detection. All using
the shortest sample-to-data workflow among all benchtop sequencers.
With MiSeq, you can:
- Access the world's most widely published and accurate sequencing chemistry, backed by > 3,300 peer-reviewed publications
- Multiplex up to 96 samples per run for greater efficiency
- Get accurate bi-directional amplicon sequencing
- Generate more complete de novo assemblies
Libraries must be prepared before they can be run on either the Illumina or 454 systems. We accept both
prepared and unprepared samples for sequencing.
The sheer volume of data generated using high-throughput sequencing creates many
informatic challenges. We offer bioinformatics support associated with data management,
read mapping, individual consultations, and extended analysis. We also can point you in
the right direction with a variety of services.
If you have questions regarding the design of experiments using Illumina sequencing,
we provide consultations regarding any type of experiment, including transcriptome
analyses, ChIP studies, or exon captures.
