This portal is for submitting orders for services provided by the National Genomics Infrastructure Sweden (NGI). To make an order, please log in and choose the application most suitable for your project. If uncertain about the choice of technology, please select the “Request a meeting” option. You can read more about the different technologies and How to place an order under "Information" in the menu at the top of the page.
Projects from other countries are admissible, but have lower priority than projects performed by researchers based in Sweden. Depending on the queue situation, NGI may decide to decline a non-Swedish project altogether.
If you are unsure about the appropriate method for your scientific problem, request a meeting for a discussion with us.
Order form for Illumina sequencing.
Order form for sequencing by Ion Proton or Ion S5XL.
Order form for PacBio sequencing. This is available only at the NGI Uppsala UGC node.
Order form for genotyping and DNA methylation analysis using the Illumina EPIC beadchip.
Improving accessibility to data deliveries
Now we have improved the accessibility to the delivered data! By default, the bioinformatic contact person appointed by the PI on the sequencing or genotyping order will now have access to the delivered data, in addition to the PI. Previously, the PI was the only person with access to the data and he or she had to explicitly grant access to additional persons. This requires that the persons with access to the data have registered an account in SUPR and the email addresses on the order are the same as the ones used when registering the account.
33 milion SEK to support and advance large-scale genomic research in Sweden
The SciLifeLab Board has announced its decision on funding 14 projects within the SciLifeLab National Sequencing Projects initiative. The aim of the initiative is to support and advance large-scale genomic research in Sweden within both health and biodiversity by providing sequencing support to scientists through open calls. Thereby supporting them in carrying out competitive international research.
The grants are awarded as a deduction of costs for sample processing and sequencing at the National Genomics Infrastructure (NGI) and the Microbial Single Cell Genomics facility. The total sum awarded is 33 million SEK and will result in the sequencing of thousands of genomes within the projects by NGI.
New sequencing system
The NovaSeq6000 sequencing system (Illumina Inc.) is now installed at the NGI facilities in Uppsala and Stockholm.
The NovaSeq, launched by Illumina early 2017, offers high-throughput sequencing across the full range of DNA- and RNA-sequencing applications including transcriptome profiling, target re-sequencing, low coverage genome sequencing and single cell applications. By acquiring the NovaSeq6000 NGI will continue to offer the most cost efficient sequencing service to our users. Whole genome sequencing at a coverage of at least 15x will continue to be run on HiSeqX as the most cost efficient approach. During the summer and beginning of the fall, the NovaSeq systems will be validated and NGI aims to accept projects from users from September 2017. Projects already submitted and scheduled for HiSeq2500 may be transferred to the NovaSeq, in those cases the NGI project coordinators will contact the user for a discussion. You can read more about the NovaSeq system at the Illumina website.
New data delivery system
In mid-June, NGI will start introducing a new, secure system for delivering sequence and genotype data to users. With this new system, once your project is ready, you will be given access to a secure delivery server where your data will be available for download for a limited period of time.
For more information, please visit the Data delivery webpage
NGI includes facilities established by profs Ulf Gyllensten (Uppsala), Ann-Christine Syvänen (Uppsala) and Joakim Lundeberg (Stockholm). The National Genomics Infrastructure (NGI) was launched January 1st 2013. It originates from the VR RFI infrastructure SNISS.
NGI is supported by SciLifeLab, the Swedish Research Council (Vetenskapsrådet, VR) and host universities (KI, KTH, SU, UU). In addition, the Knut and Alice Wallenberg Foundation (KAW) has provided funding for instruments and computational infrastructure.
