University of Connecticut Health Center - Know Better Care Next Generation Sequencing

NGS services from Perkin-Elmer

The University of Connecticut has entered into an agreement with Perkin-Elmer Corporation of Guilford CT to provide Illumina next generation (deep) sequencing. This service replaces the sequencing previously provided by the UCHC Translational Genomics Core. As was the case previously, investigators will be responsible for library preparation for sequencing as well as for data analysis, however, Perkin-Elmer offers the library preparation services for an additional cost. The process for submitting service requests to Perkin Elmer is described below.

Special pricing

UConn\UCHC investigators will be charged for reagent costs for their share of the flow cell, i.e. the number of lanes utilized for a sequencing run. These services have been negotiated for the UConn\UCHC research communities and do not reflect market pricing and do not extend to UConn or UCHC sub-recipients and external partners.

Electronic data delivery, data storage, and analysis

The University is acquiring a computer system for direct data transfer from Perkin-Elmer. We expect that electronic data delivery will become available during the second quarter of 2013, which will obviate hard disk and shipping charges. The UCHC High Performance Computing Facility will also provide to UConn\UCHC investigators, free of charge, data archival, as well as "self-service" data analysis services on our compute clusters (including, but not limited to, the Galaxy Tools suite of applications). If "full-service" bioinformatics support is required, investigators should make individual arrangements for specific data analysis needs with third party providers.
