Next Generation Sequencing Core adds Illumina DNA sequencers

circos_blancThe CSU Next Generation Sequencing Core recently added two new sequencers to its lineup – Illumina NextSeq and Illumina MiSeq. In addition to two existing sequencers – Ion Proton and Ion Torrent (PGM) – the Core now provides access to four state-of-the-art DNA sequencers.

The Illumina NextSeq sequencer provides high-end power for analyzing whole genomes, exomes, transcriptomes and large-scale metagenomic samples. The MiSeq sequencer provides more focused applications such as targeted gene sequencing, small genome sequencing, targeted gene expression, 16S metagenomics and amplicon sequencing.

The NextGen Core provides a wide variety of services including DNA-Seq, RNA-Seq, CHiP-Seq, Methyl-Seq, Ribo-Seq, RAD-Seq, metagenomics, metatranscriptomics, amplicon sequencing and de novo assembly. Bioinformatics data analysis, data management and computational resources are also available through the Core.

The NextGen Core is available to CSU faculty, postdocs, graduate students, and other researchers affiliated with the university. And it provides services for external customers in government, nonprofit and commercial organizations.
