Welcome to the UF ICBR NextGen DNA Sequencing core facility. The ICBR-NGS core provides researchers with quality, massively parallel, high-throughput sequencing data using the most current instrumentation, at a reasonable cost. We currently support the most popular platforms: Illumina NextSeq500 and MiSeq, HiSeq3000 and the Pacific Biosciences SEQUEL system. Together, these instruments cover a broad range of powerful applications. Our free consultation services aim to help researchers navigate through the complex matrix of experimental options represented by the available sequencing technologies. Some of these important considerations include: read length, error rate, predominant type of error, data output/run, speed, cost, etc. The ever-broadening range of applications include (but are not limited to) de novo sequencing of whole genomes, targeted sequencing, transcriptome sequencing (RNA-Seq), chromatin immunoprecipitation (ChIP) sequencing, methylation analysis and metagenomics.

Our sample prep and library construction services are offered through both the NGS and the GeneExpression/Genotyping Cores. Please contact us if the service of your interest is not listed. We strive to support most common applications.
