Genomics & Transcriptomics

CAGEF offers DNA sequencing, RNA sequencing and downstream analysis for a wide range of research applications, from whole genome sequencing to small RNA analysis. Whether you’re hunting for a single nucleotide polymorphism or exploring a metatranscriptome, we have the equipment, skill, and experience to help you achieve your research goals.
We offer Next Generation sequencing with our Illumina NextSeq and MiSeq sequencers and our MGI DNBSEQ-G400 sequencer. We offer high throughput Sanger sequencing with our 48-capillary 3730 Genetic Analyzer.


Our Illumina NextSeq2000 and MiSeq sequencers, and our MGI DNBSEQ G400RS high-throughput sequencer can be used for:

  • whole genome sequencing
  • SNP detection
  • RNA-Seq
  • small RNA analysis
  • chromatin immunoprecipitation assays
  • 16S microbiome sequencing
  • metagenome sequencing
  • metatranscriptome sequencing
