NextGen Sequencing and Library Prep
We are pleased to now offer Next Generation sequencing on Illumina's MiSeq platform, purchased through joint efforts of the Microbiology Department, Ecology and Evolutionary Biology Department, and Biochemistry and Cellular and Molecular Biology Department. The MiSeq provides great flexibility in Next Generation sequencing and is ideal for small genomes, metagenomics, amplicon sequencing, RNA Seq, and other targeted projects.
Users are welcome to prepare their own library or we can prepare libraries for you. Click here for pricing or contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org for questions about specific projects. Every library is unique and has its own considerations.
Details about the different options available for the MiSeq sequencing reagents are listed below:
|MiSeq Sequencing Kit||Bases >Q30||Run Time||Maximum Number of Bases||Maximum Total Number of Reads|
|version 2, 50 cycle (2x25)||90%||~5.5 hours||750-850 MB||24-30 million|
|version 2, 300 cycle (2x150)||80%||~24 hours||4-5 Gb||24-30 million|
|version 2, 500 cycle (2x250)||75%||~39 hours||7-8 Gb||24-30 million|
|version 3, 150 cycle (2x75)||85%||~21 hours||2-3 Gb||44-50 million|
|version 3, 600 cycle (2x300)||70%||~56 hours||13-15 Gb||44-50 million|
The Ion Torrent is no longer available in our facility. An Ion Torrent is available for use on the Ag Campus. Contact Sujata Agarwal for more information.
