Sequencing Core

Sequencing Core
The UM-IBBR Sequencing Core provides the research community at the University of Maryland (as well as off-campus customers) with access to 'Next Generation' sequencing. We feature an Illumina HiSeq1000 instrument, which can generate up to 500 million clusters, or a billion paired-end reads per run. Services and Technologies Offered - Illumina: Run times range from about four days for 50-base applications to 8 days for 100-base paired-end reads and the accuracy enables a broad range of applications, including but not limited to: DNA sequencing (DNA-seq), Transcriptome analysis (RNA-seq), Information about the Illumina technology and capabilities can be viewed at
