Next-generation Sequencing (NGS) - NovaSeq 6000 Illumina and MiSeq sequencing platforms.

Two primary sequencing platforms are available to meet various needs. The core team performs library preparations for optimal cluster generation and maximal data output across flow cells to cover a wide range of sequencing needs including targeted sequencing, RNA-seq, 16S metagenomics, methylation and whole genome sequencing. Alternatively, researchers can submit user prepared libraries for quality control and sequencing.
