Genome Sequencing

The IIHG Genomics Division provides genomic or massively parallel DNA sequencing using the Illumina platform. A custom LIMS facilitates sample management throughout the workflow. Users receive all information regarding sample preparation along with sequencing results. All data are backed up and archived. A powerful computer cluster supports data analysis. Members of the IIHG Bioinformatics Division perform a preliminary analysis (e.g., assembly, alignment, etc.) on all runs.

The applications supported by the division include:

  • Custom and whole exome sequence target capture
  • RNA-Seq (quantification of transcript, i.e., expression analysis)
  • smRNA discovery and quantification
  • DNA-Seq (Resequencing)
  • ChIP-Seq
  • Methyl-Seq
  • De novo Sequencing
