The Genomics Unit offers short read (Illumina NexSeq 2000 and Illumina MiSeq) and long read (Nanopore MinION) sequencing, Library prepretation, and Fragment-analyzer/TapeStation sample QC services. The unit provide a range of services: RNA-Seq, Whole Genome Sequencing, Spatial transcriptomics and Metagenomics (16S rRNA). For Single Cell sequencing the unit operates a 10X Genomics Chromium controller.
