Bio-IT Centre is fully operational now
We are happy to announce that the NGS facility at the Bio-IT centre has been extensively validated and fully operational. We have sequenced a set of actual samples and the data quality obtained was exceptional. The Bio-IT center, comprises state-of-the-art facility for NGS with the high throughput sequencer Hi Seq 2500, which can generate 480-500GB data in 10 days equivalent to sequencing 6 human genomes at 30X coverage. Other equipment in the facility include Hi-Scan (Illumina bead-array) for genotyping and Ion-torrent for NGS and Qubit, C-bot, Covaris, Bio-analyzer and Tape-station for the processing of DNA and RNA samples. The Bio-IT centre is now fully prepared to provide service to the scientific community. Service is provided in a collaborative program mode or on a purely service basis. Please contact us (firstname.lastname@example.org) if you have any sequencing requirements.
