Whether you are a core genomics facility, focused on population genetics, or genomics our workflow can enable your discovery journey.
The MGI Next Generation Sequencers from BGI are ideal short read sequencers for Genomics Researchers in Australia and New Zealand. By utilisation Nanoball technology the MGI sequencers achieve a low duplicate rate and virtually zero index hopping.
stLFR uses clonal barcoding to add barcodes to high molecular weight DNA to create synthetic long reads. These synthetic long reads provide long range information from the MGI short read technology, enabling better mapping of complex structural variations. The stLFR solution from MGI allows you to reliably access medically relevant regions that are unmappable with short reads such as those located in the NGS Dead zone. Additionally, stLFR allows phasing and haplotyping and provides superior detection of SNV’s and CNV’s.
In addition to mapping structural variants, stLFR enables De Novo assembly via produces phasing blocks with N50 sizes in escess of 10MB
The stLFR solution from MGI provides phased blocks with N50 sizes in excess of 10MB
The ISP100 and ISP960 from MGI are open automation liquid handling platforms. Specifically designed for Next Generation Sequencing the units come optimitsed for sample preparation and library preparation.
