De novo genome assembly

Oxford Nanopore technology

The Oxford Nanopore MinION is a sequencing device capable of generating ultra-long reads, some of them in excess of 100kb.

Illumina technology

If you plan to do a de novo genome assembly, we can use Illumina kits to prepare your library.

For small genomes, we recommend the Illumina Nextera XT kit.
For larger genomes, we recommend the Standard TruSeq kit.

ORDER a library prep

If your library is already constructed, you can order the sequencing service alone.
