DNA Sequencing Section (SQC)
The mission of the section is to promote advances in biological science by providing researchers with genomic analyses that utilize the latest and most advanced technologies.
We offer OIST researchers next-generation sequencing (NGS) services in a wide range of NGS applications including de novo genome sequencing, re-sequencing, RNA sequencing, and ChIP sequencing, etc. Please see the "Service List" page for more information.
Currently, we house seven NGS sequencers: one Hiseq4000, two Illumina HiSeq2500, two MiSeq, one PacBio RSII, and one Life Technologies Ion Proton. Please see the "NGS Platforms" page for more information.
We help researchers with their project planning, library preparation, and sequencing.
We also manage capillary sequencers, realtime PCR and microarray etc. for common use. Please see "Common Equipment" page for the equipment list and the rules regarding use.
