Current applications available for Roche GS-FLX using the current Titanium chemistry include:
The sequence reads (in fasta format) and quality files will be accessible via our database (Nanuq) as soon as they have been analyzed. As part of our service the bioinformatics team can assemble the sequencing reads or map against a provided reference sequence if requested.
We are proud to have been among a select few sites to have participated in an early access program for the new GS FLX software version 2.8 in the Fall of 2012. The FLX "Plus" chemistry has been available for over a year generating longer read lengths, which in our hands ranged between an average of 600 bases. Now with the new v 2.8 software, even longer reads are possible, up to 1000 bases or more!
