Now accepting DNA, RNA for 454-sequencing! | Print |  E-mail

We are happy to announce we are now accepting DNA and RNA samples for shotgun sequencing as well as barcoding of samples using our 454-Junior metasequencer from Roche.

The current price for a single 454-Junior shotgun sequencing run and primary assembly of results will be:

$1700.00 USD ($1800 for barcoding of up to 12 barcodes)

For RNA (due to extra steps):

$1800.00 USD ($1900 for barcoding up to 12 barcodes)

Remember that we are non-profit. All costs are associated with the purchase of kits and supplies to turn your DNA into data. In preliminary test runs we exceeded 100,000 reads, and average reads lengths exceeding 435nt.

For a workorder, or to be placed into the queue for sequencing runs, please contact Dr. Hong Jin Hwang ( This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it ) or Dr. Peter Hoyt ( This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it until we can automate the queue process. More information will be available on our website as soon as possible. We will be posting a downloadable workorder soon.

Thanks to everyone who helped bring this capability to OSU.
