With generous support from Chancellor of Rutgers New Brunswick, we are pleased to announce the acquisition of a PacBio Sequel DNA sequencer. The Sequel uses Single Molecule Real Time (SMRT) technology to produce long reads, uniform coverage, and high consensus accuracy. The Sequel long 10-15kb reads are ideal for whole genome sequencing, full-length transcript sequencing, or sequencing of long amplicons. Additionally, its SMRT sequencing technology can also be used to directly detect DNA base modifications.

We are adding Ion Proton sequencer and Digital PCR late Jan 2014

Waksman Genomes Core Facility now offers services for Illumina HiSeq and MiSeq.

SpirodelaBase: Spirodela polyrhiza whole genome sequencing
The SprirodelaBase Project is currently working on a manuscript describing the genome-sequencing project. The raw reads are now available:

The Genomics Core Facility has moved to room 218 in the Waksman Old Wing.
