NGI during Covid-19 outbreak

NGI is still up and running during the Covid-19 pandemic, but we are experiencing some limitations in terms of personnel and key reagents. Each NGI node is following its respective host university recommendations and will continue operation until further notice.

DNA resequencing

High-throughput full-genome or targeted sequencing of DNA from organisms with an existing reference genome.

Whole genome resequencing
Sequence the entire genome, including non-coding and intergenic regions. Gives high resolution data for identification and study of genomic variation.
Targeted resequencing
Methods to identify and study variation within specific genomic regions of interest.
Whole Exome Sequencing
Targeted enrichment and sequencing of the protein-coding regions of the genome.
Illumina 16S sequencing

Sequencing of the 16S gene to study bacterial diversity and composition in a sample.

Illumina amplicon sequencing

Sequencing of PCR amplicons to study genetic variation within small target regions.

Illumina Nextera DNA Flex

Low cost library preparation option for gDNA based on bead-linked transposase. Only for full plates of samples.

Illumina TruSeq DNA PCR-free

Gold standard method for shotgun DNA libraries used for whole genome sequencing and metagenomics.

Illumina TruSeq DNA Nano

Library preparation from limited input DNA, used in whole genome sequencing and metagenomics etc.

SMARTer ThruPLEX DNA-seq

Library preparation for DNA, ideal for preparing libraries from small amounts of input material. Works well for shotgun libraries, ChIP DNA and FFPE samples, amongst others.

Ion Torrent sequencing

Ion Torrent semiconductor sequencing technology is as simple as it is fast.

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.

RAD-sequencing

Genotyping-by-sequencing without prior genome information.

TELL-seq

Library preparation technology linking reads from long DNA fragments useful for example for de novo sequencing or phasing of variants in whole genome resequencing.

Twist Bioscience Human Core Exome

A platform for human whole exome sequencing (WES) using target enrichment and library preparation for next generation sequencing.

Ion Torrent secondary analysis

Ion Torrent data handling and analysis

Nanopore analysis

Quality control, Basecalling and multiplexing of sequencing reads generated by Oxford Nanopore sequencers.

PacBio secondary analysis

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

PromethION secondary analysis

Additional compute intensive nanopore raw data processing services provided by NGI

Illumina QC analysis

Basic quality-control monitoring of Illumina FastQ sequence data.

WGS analysis

Runs with illumina human DNA-sequencing data. This goes through alignment, alignment quality control, data processing, variant calling, and variant filtration.

WGS germline / somatic analysis

Runs with illumina DNA-sequencing data, WGS or targeted sequencing. Aligns to the reference genome, gives QC metrics, does variant-calling and finishes with annotation.
