DNA Sequencing Platform

DNA Sequencing Platform

The Genome Center maintains a state-of-the-art DNA Sequencing Platform (DSP) equipped to support large-scale genetics and genomics research as well as clinical-grade diagnostic nucleic acid sequencing.

 

Automated workflows for sample processing and sequencing library preparation coupled with high throughput DNA sequencing allow for high quality, cost-effective and timely data generation, thereby empowering large projects with hundreds or thousands of DNA or RNA samples.

 

ISO 15189 accreditation of the DSP provides a laboratory environment capable of producing clinical grade sequencing data. Acknowledging the critical issue of speed to medical clinical diagnostics, the DSP offers a ‘fast turn-around time’ WES service for WGS, WES and RNA-seq , providing data generation from sample delivery in less than 7 days.

The Sequencing Platform service offerings are:

  • Clinical grade whole genome sequencing (WGS)
  • Clinical grade whole exome sequencing (WES)
  • Clinical grade RNA sequencing (RNA-seq)
  • Fast turnaround time clinical grade WGS, WES and RNA-seq
  • Low-coverage WGS with variant imputation
  • Viral pathogen WGS
  • Microbiome WGS
  • Sequencing of user-prepared libraries
