Next Gen Sequencing Services

The BDI Genomics Center is dedicated to providing high-quality service and offering flexible options that allow personalized service to our users. The genomics core offers Illumina Sequencing using the Illumina NextSeq 500 and Illumina MiSeq sequencing platforms. We are equipped to handle most sample types and workflows offering a variety of library preparation solutions, sequencing, and data analysis solutions for investigating the whole genome, exome, transcriptome, and targeted sequences.


NextSeq 500 system

The NextSeq 500 is the right sequencer for any project size. It is the only desktop sequencing system capable of sequencing a high coverage (30x) whole human genome in one run. Its flexible throughput means no waiting to fill a flowcell and thus a quicker turnaround time for your sequencing sample. Because of high and mid output options, the NextSeq can easily shift between high and low throughput projects. 


MiSeq 2 System 

The MiSeq 2 desktop sequencer allows for more focused applications such as targeted gene sequencing, metagenomics, small genome and transcriptome sequencing, targeted gene expression, and amplicon sequencing. Generating up to 25 million reads, the MiSeq sequencer is ideal for reduced representation studies and narrowly focused applications.
