Over the last 10 years, DNA sequencing has experienced an exponential growth due to the emergence and development of mass sequencing techniques (NGS, Next Generation Sequencing). Currently, these initials encompass both the second generation sequencing platforms as well as the new third generation platforms. The implementation and development of these techniques open up new possibilities for analysis in multiple subdisciplines related to Biological and Health Sciences.
In order for these advances to take place, it is essential to have adequate sequencing platforms as well as professional personnel experienced in this type of techniques.
In this context and with the idea of promoting biomedical research, the Sequencing and Bioinformatics Service of FISABIO-Public Health was born.
Active sequencing protocols
FISABIO’s sequencing service offers the possibility of multiplexing (joining samples), according to the coverage required by the user: amplicon sequencing, complete genome sequencing, complete genome resequencing, transcriptome sequencing, metagenome sequencing, metatranscriptome sequencing, small RNAs sequencing, gene panels, etc.
FISABIO’s bioinformatics service offers standardized pipelines for the analysis of sequencing data. We also offer the possibility of writing ad hoc scripts and pipelines, elaborated specifically for the necessities of the users.
The FISABIO Sequencing and Bioinformatics Service offers counseling based on the experience acquired in its trajectory: from the first second generation sequencers, through the evolution of Illumina sequencers, to the new technologies of third generation.
