The services available are

  • Next-Generation Sequencing (NGS) on Illumina MiSeq
  • Sanger DNA sequencing on a Applied BioSystem Genetic Analyser 3500. Contact Anna [dot] Sterngren [at] biol [dot] lu [dot] se for more information.
  • 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.
