As the name suggests, NUSeq is primarily a next-generation sequencing (NGS) core facility. Providing first-class NGS technology to the Northwestern research community is a main focus of the core. NUSeq has a fleet of NGS sequencers that spans all major Illumina sequencing technologies from MiSeq to HiSeq 4000. Thousands of sequencing libraries have been constructed and sequenced encompassing all major NGS applications, from RNA-seq to sequencing of CRISPR/Cas9 gene editing products.
Major Next-Generation Sequencers
We are constantly evaluating sequencing technology needs for Northwestern researchers. If you have needs for other sequencing platforms, such as the PacBio Sequel or Oxford NanoPore sequencers, please contact us.
NUSeq supports all NGS-based research projects. Major types of NGS applications including the following:
- RNA Sequencing
- Whole Genome Sequencing
- Whole Exome Sequencing
- Mitochondrial DNA Sequencing
- DNA Methylation Sequencing
- ATAC-Seq for Assaying Chromatic Accessibility
- ChIP Sequencing
- Microbiome Sequencing
- Sample submission
- Sample QC
- Library prep
