NovaSeq coming soon to NSC!
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.
