High Throughput Sequencing

The UiB Genomic Core Facility (GCF) offers a range of different NGS applications. The main volume of samples sequenced at GCF are mRNA-Seq and Exome-Seq. We sequence a range of different species, from whale, plants, fish to human samples. Our services are used in many research environments in Bergen, from marine research, basic biology and biomedicine.


High Throughput Sequencing Service


Sequencing systems available through the UiB Genomic Core Facility (GCF): 

  • Illumina NovaSeq 6000
  • Illumina NextSeq 500
  • Illumina MiSeq



NGS applications* offered at UiB Genomic Core Facility: 

  • Whole genome sequencing (including human whole genome)
  • Exome sequencing
  • Transcriptome sequencing for SNP detection, expression analysis, and splice variant detection
  • Protein-DNA/RNA interactions (ChIP-Seq, etc.)
  • Targeted resequencing
  • Metagenomics
  • Sequencing of ready-made libraries from users (quality checked by GCF)

*Please contact the UiB Genomic Core Facility if you would like to sequence any other type of application.

We can perform both single- or paired-end sequencing up to 300bp 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 NovaSeq6000 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.


NGS Submission Guidelines

Please see our NGS submission guidelines for more information regarding different applications and how to submit samples for sequencing at GCF.
