The Next Generation of Sequencing is Now: Applications of the NextSeq500 System

Wed, June 17th, 2015, 12:00 pm, Medical Science Building, B-610

Host: NJMS Research Office and Core Facilities

Speaker: Michael G. Smith, Ph.D, NGS Sequencing Specialist ABSTRACT: Illumina has an extensive portfolio of sequencing systems, from the powerful, high-throughput HiSeq systems to the ultra-fast MiSeq system. Empowered by TruSeq and Nextera technologies, each sequencer features the industry’s simplest, most streamlined workflow and delivers unparalleled data quality for a wide range of research applications. The HiSeq4000, the latest advance in the HiSeq portfolio, can generate 1.5 TBases of sequence in just 3.5 days perfect for ultra-deep shotgun metagenomic applications. The flexibility of the NextSeq500 system lies in the multiple flowcell options which enable efficient sequencing of small targeted panels, RNA transcript profiling, exome or genome sequencing. The NextSeq 500 System is the only desktop system capable of sequencing a 30× human genome in a single run. The MiSeq personal sequencing system enables researchers to go from sample to analyzed data in as little as eight hours with a revolutionary workflow, unmatched accuracy, and flexibility. In addition, Illumina has simplified data analysis and storage via BaseSpace, a cloud computing environment where researchers can securely analyze, archive and share their sequencing data.

Technology Lecture Series "High Efficient Genome Editing with Cas9 RNP"

Wed, June 10th, 2015, 12:00 pm, Medical Science Building, B-552

Host: NJMS Research Office and Core Facilities

CRISPR/Cas9 has revolutionized the ease with which genome editing can be done. However, the efficiencies obtained by transfecting a Cas9 expressing plasmid DNA are highly variable and often result in substantial off-target cleavage.
