Genome Sequencing

The IIHG Genomics Division provides genomic or massively parallel DNA sequencing using the Illumina platform. Investigators can submit RNA/DNA samples for library preparation and sequencing, or submit their own prepared libraries for sequencing. A custom LIMS facilitates sample management throughout the workflow provides users access to information regarding sample preparation along with their sequencing results. A powerful computer cluster supports data analysis and members of the IIHG Bioinformatics Division perform a preliminary analysis (e.g., assembly, alignment, etc.) on all runs. All data are backed up and archived.  

The applications supported by the division include:

  • ChIP-Seq
  • Custom Target Sequencing
  • Long Read Sequencing
  • RNA-Seq (mRNA and ribo-depleted Total RNA sequencing) 
  • Single-Cell RNA-Seq (single-cell expression profiling) 
  • smRNA discovery and quantification
  • Whole Exome Sequencing 
  • Whole Genome Sequencing
