Sequencing

We offer a mid-throughput next-generation sequencing service. Our workflow is complete from library preparation and quality control to sequencing and data analysis and presentation. Sequencing is performed using Illumina MiSeq with the following specifications:

  • 50 to 300 bases read length, single or paired.
  • 25M reads per run.
  • Up to 15G bases output.
  • Up to 384 samples multiplexed per run.

Applications

  • Non-coding RNA: miRNA, snoRNA
  • Microbiome characterization by 16S metagenomics
  • ChIP Seq
  • Small transcriptome

PLEASE NOTE: For any request requiring increased sequencing depth, we are referring the sequencing run to partner genome centers such as the McGill University and Génome Québec Innovation Centre. We offer to complete the workflow by performing the library preparation, quality control, and shipping to the centre. We will retrieve the sequence data and perform bioinformatics analysis as requested.
