The University of Oregon has several facilities that provide support for genomics, bioinformatics, and high-throughput sequencing experiments. These include the High Throughput DNA Sequencing and Genomics facility, the ACISS supercomputer cluster and a new High Performance Computing Research Core Facility.
DNA Sequencing and Genomic Facility
The UO High Throughput DNA Sequencing and Genomics Facility supports scientific research at the University of Oregon by offering genetic and genomic technologies. In-house services include microarray-based genotyping, microarray printing, robotics for high throughput manipulation of DNA samples, and next generation Illumina-based high throughput DNA sequencing and associated bioinformatics.
The facility currently operates an Illumina HiSeq 2000, a next generation DNA sequencer with the ability to run two 8-lane flowcells at a time yielding 200 million reads from each of the 16 lanes. Sequencing of read lengths from 50 to 150 nucleotides for both single-read and paired-end sequencing are available.
We also have an Illumina NextSEQ 500, which was purchased specifically for the Bioinformatics Masters Program.
