Arthritis Center for Diagnostic & Therapeutic Innovation

Next generation sequencing 
center

Our sequencing centre provides cost-effective solutions to your sequencing needs. The collaborative process begins by consulting with our sequencing specialist who will work closely with your lab personnel to plan, design, and budget for the proposed sequencing project, providing guidance on sample and lobar preparation, and perform the sequencing. However, under the guidance of the sequencing specialist, individual labs will be responsible for obtaining the reagents and making their sample binaries. After sequencing, the Center's bioinformatician will process the data, and provide the Investigator with an expression matrix for each sample for final analysis and interpretation.
