We support massively parallel high throughput sequencing using our Illumina HiSeq and NextSeq instruments. These sequencers can generate billions of bases of data per run and enable a wide variety of applications. Researchers can choose either single or paired-end reads. Multiple samples can be indexed (barcoded) and be combined in order to make the most of the system's output.

The core will keep samples and libraries for three months after we run them. If you would like to have your remaining sample/library returned, please ask the staff. After three months, extra sample/library will be discarded.

Please send all questions to
