The Sequencing Center provides basic bioinformatics as an inclusive service with all genome sequencing projects. Here’s what you can expect to receive with each type of project.
FASTQ Files: All microbial sequencing projects receive the raw FASTQ files directly exported from our Illumina sequencers. Researchers can use FASTQ files as the starting point for most downstream bioinformatics and data analysis.
Geneious Variant Call Report: If you have a reference genome for us to align your sample against, we can generate a variant call report through a program called Geneious Prime. These reports will be stored in the “Genotype” directory in a hyperlink we send to you with your data. Projects that are unable to provide a reference genome will not include this report.
FASTQ Files: HLA projects receive raw FASTQ files directly from the sequencer.
FASTQ Files: All metagenomic and microbiome projects receive the raw FASTQ files directly from the sequencer.
In addition to the included basic bioinformatics, we often provide advanced bioinformatics for clients with more complex research objectives. This may include:
The Sequencing Center is one of the leading HLA service providers in the USA. Offering affordable, high-coverage HLA typing results with 4-field resolution, we pride ourselves on providing clients with exceptional services, including DNA extraction, library prep, sequencing and bioinformatics. We work with leading research organizations world-wide across a variety of fields including immunology, oncology, transplantation, inherited diseases, neurodegenerative diseases, and drug discovery and development.
