High Throughput Sequencing

GCF-UiB has recently installed a Illumina HiSeq 4000 sequencing system that can be used for a broad range of applications, including. 

  • Whole genome sequencing (including human whole genome)
  • Exome sequencing
  • Protein-DNA/RNA interactions (ChIP-Seq, etc.)
  • Small RNA discovery/expression
  • Transcriptome sequencing for SNP detection, expression analysis, and splice variant detection
  • Targeted resequencing
  • Metagenomics

We can perform both single- or paired-end sequencing up to 150bp read lengths. Pricing is applications specific and dependent on several factors like; choice of library preparation, application, coverage/reads per sample, single- or paired-end sequencing method. Details about the HiSeq400 can be found here.

Please contact us regarding your research project so we can discuss different applications that could be applicable and designing the sequencing experiment.
