The services available are

  • Next-Generation Sequencing (NGS) on Illumina MiSeq
  • Sanger DNA sequencing on a 16-capillary Applied Biosystems 3130xl Genetic Analyzer
  • Quality checking/assessment of DNA and RNA on Agilent 2100 BioAnalyzer
  • Bioinformatics

Our facility staff have expertise in most aspects of DNA sequence analysis and bioinformatics and can offer help and advice to both experienced and beginner researchers.
