SEQUENCING

Sanger Sequencing and Genotyping (Applied Biosystems 3730 DNA Analyzer)

  • Capillary electrophoresis DNA sequencing
  • Sequencing of bisulfite treated DNA for DNA methylation analysis
  • SNP genotyping, relative fluorescent quantification (LOH), microsatellite analysis

Next-Generation Sequencing (high-throughput data generation through Nationwide Children’s Hospital Biomedical Genomics Core):

  • Illumina HiSeq 4000 Custom and established sequencing experiments such as whole genome sequencing, smRNA-seq, RNA-seq (mRNAseq and ribo-depleted total transcriptome profiling; different kit-based protocols to allow different level of input amounts), exome profiling, ChIP-seq, Targeted DNA-seq, Reduced Representation Bisulfite Sequencing, Ampli-seq and metagenomic/metatranscriptomic analysis
  • Illumina MiSeq, NovaSeq and MiniSeq, Chromium 10X Genomics and Pacific Biosystems Sequel NGS instruments are also available at NCH for select NGS projects.

LIBRARY GENERATION for NEXT-GENERATION SEQUENCING
