10x Genomics Chromium Controller now available at NSC
Single-cell RNA-seq, single-cell ATAC-seq and "linked" (synthetic long) reads are among the possible applications. If you are interested in accessing these services, please get in touch, as we are soliciting early-access users! More info here: https://www.10xgenomics.com/
New 16S Service
To meet demand, we have launched a 16S service. We offer amplification and sequencing with the "Fadrosh et al" procedure (https://doi.org/10.1186/2049-2618-2-6), which gives excellent results with only 10% PhiX blend, with sequencing on the MiSeq with 300 bp paired end reads. The V3-V4 regions are targeted with primers 319F-806R. Prices for sample batches of ≤24, ≤48, ≤94 and ≤190 are 30, 35, 40 and 50,000 NOK (including MVA and a MiSeq run). Users must supply purified genomic DNA, and can choose to receive data in FASTQ, QIIME or MOTHUR analysis formats. For input requirements etc., please see our submission guidelines.
The NSC will close over the Christmas break. Deadline for submissions is 15:00 on Thursday 19th December. We will reopen again from Monday 6th January 2020.
After 6 years as a workhorse of the facility, we are now phasing out HiSeq 2500 services. The OUS HiSeq 2500 has been decommissioned, but the machine at CEES will be available until end of March 2019.
The NSC has purchased an Illumina NovaSeq 6000 system, and will make this available to users as a service as soon as installation and testing are completed. A high capacity sequencer, the NovaSeq can generate up to 6 Tb data per run in under 48 hours. Smaller ouput runs are also available - for more information see: https://emea.illumina.com/systems/sequencing-platforms/novaseq/specifications.html. Users can expect a small drop in price for genome sequencing, but RNA-seq may be 15-40% cheaper, depending on scale and readlength.
