MGC Next-Generation Sequencing Service

Next-generation sequencing is performed on an Illumina MiSeq. The MiSeq is a personal sequencing platform that utilizes Illumina's TruSeq chemistry, and can produce results in hours instead of days. Amplification, sequencing, and data analysis are integrated into one instrument. New MiSeq reagents enable up to 15 Gb of output with 25 M sequencing reads and 2x300 bp read lengths. The following applications can be performed on the MiSeq:

  • Targeted Resequencing
    • Amplicons
    • Metagenomics (16S rRNA)
    • Clone checking
  • Small Genome Sequencing
  • RNA Sequencing
    • Small RNA sequencing
    • RNA-Seq
  • Library QC
  • Regulation
    • ChIP-Seq
  • Methylated DNA Resequencing

    For more information on the MiSeq visit Illiuma's web site.
