Next-Generation Sequencing (Ion Torrent PGM)

We currently offer sequencing services on the Ion Torrent Personal Genome Machine (PGM) instrument. This is a new sequencer that uses semiconductor chip technology increasing the throughput with commensurate cost reductions to provide many new opportunities for scientific inquiry: Amplicon sequencing of multiple genes, capture of genomic regions, whole exome sequencing, RNA transcriptome, microbiome studies.

The Next-Generation Sequencing Facility is available to provide support and assistance throughout each stage of the sequencing process

  • Quality control for provided material
  • Library constructions
  • Examples of sequencing applications
  • Data quality analysis and delivery
