Studying Microbial Diversity

The addition of the illumina MiSeq to our Core offerings has enabled us to take a deep look into the complex landscape of oral microbiota. As a collaborative effort with domain experts here at the Center of Excellence in Bioinfomatics and Life Sciences, we are proud to announce a new publication!

Diagenode SX-8G Compact

We are happy to announce the latest equipment addition to the lab, the Diagenode SX-8G Compact automated robot for ChIP assays and NGS library preparation. Please contact us for a full list of histone modifications that we currently support.

Use of the SX-8G IP-Star® Compact System significantly reduces the hands-on time for RNA-seq library synthesis, adenylation, and adaptor ligation providing with high quality RNA-seq libraries tailored for Illumina high-throughput next-generation sequencing. Generated data exhibits high technical reproducibility compared to data from RNA-seq libraries synthesized manually for the same samples. Obtained results are consistent regardless the researcher, day of the experiment, and experimental run.

For more information, please refer to our recent publication.
