DNA Methylation

Methods to determine the proportion of Cytosine methylation (5mC), the most common type of base modification in DNA.

SPlinted Ligation Adapter Tagging (SPLAT) for Whole Genome Bisulphite Sequencing (WGBS)

SPLAT is an in-house developed WGBS library preparation method. This approach enables quick and efficient preparation of WGBS libraries from low-input DNA

Nanopore DNA sequencing

Nanopore instruments can sequence very long continuous fragments of DNA. Sequencing native DNA allows detection of base modifications.

PacBio SMRT sequencing

PacBio SMRT sequencing generates reads tens of kilobases in length enabling high quality genome assembly, structural variant analysis, amplicon resequencing, full-length transcript isoform sequencing, full-length 16S rRNA sequencing and amplification free epigenetic characterization.

Illumina Infinium DNA Methylation EPIC Array

The EPIC BeadChip array allows for the interrogation over 850,000 methylation sites quantitatively across the genome at single-nucleotide resolution.

Bisulfite-seq analysis

Runs with Bisulfite sequencing data. It pre-processes raw data from FastQ inputs, aligns the reads and performs extensive quality-control on the results, using either Bismark or bwa-meth/MethylDackel.

PacBio secondary analysis

Analysis applications provided by NGI using PacBio’s open-source SMRT Analysis software suite.
