Whether you are a novice or an expert in NGS sequencing technologies, GTAC can help you design a study, prepare DNA or RNA libraries, sequence samples, and analyze the data.
How to Get Started
To obtain a quote or discuss a project, contact us via our project initiation form.
If you would like to submit a sample, please review our sample submission guidelines (table format) and contact us for submission instructions. Below you will find more information about our sequencing services: library preparation, sequencing, and analyses.
GTAC offers a wide selection of library prep types for Illumina sequencing. Below is a list of prep types that we offer. For further description of these prep types and/or a consultation with our team to discuss experimental design, please contact email@example.com
Whole Genome Sequencing
Whole Exome/targeted Sequencing
- Bacterial 16S-Seq
For the HiSeq 2500, we currently offer 2x101 paired end and 1x50 single read sequencing runs. Both run types are standardly offered in rapid mode, where each flowcell has two lanes, and each lane averages 150 million reads. Other run types can be accommodated if you can fill at least two lanes at a time; that is, fill a flow cell.
For the HiSeq 3000, we offer 1x50 single read and 2x150 paired end sequencing runs. Each flowcell has 8 lanes, and each lane averages 350 million reads. Other run types can be accomodated if you can fill all eight lanes at a time; that is, fill a flow cell.
For a NovaSeq, you can choose the flowcell to tailor to the number of reads you need, and pair that with the number of cycles for your read length. The S2 flowcells come with either 100, 200 or 300 cycles and the S4 is available with 300 cycles.
GTAC also operates two Illumina MiSeq instruments. The MiSeq runs one single-lane flow-cell per run. Each run is capable of producing 12-15 million reads. We currently offer 2x150 paired end and 2x250 paired end sequencing runs in version 2 chemistry. We can also run the nano and micro flow-cells, if interested please contact us.
The sequence analysis group performs a number of analyses, which are included in the price of sequencing, to assist customers with their research needs. The goal of our analyses is to empower investigators by making next generation sequencing accessible to all users. We do this by performing complex and time consuming steps on a large computational cluster so researchers can investigate specific hypotheses on their personal computers.
