Sequencing Services

The Innovation Centre offers Sanger DNA sequencing services. With its four (4) Applied Biosystems 3730xl DNA Analyzer and a capacity exceeding 1 million high quality reads per year, the Centre can rapidly sequence PCR products, plasmids, BACs and can assist you in the completion of your SNP discovery projects. The Centre also offers a 24-hour sequencing service: BaseXpress.

The Centre has implemented the most recent Next-Generation sequencing technologies (Illumina HiSeq 2500, 4000 and X, as well as the PacBio RSII). In doing so, the Centre has developed an expertise for de novo assembly of microorganisms, for genomic resequencing with and without using sequence capture approaches, for transcriptomic studies and for epigenetic analyses.
