Sanger Sequencing

Sequencing of Plasmids (mini-preps, maxi-preps, 4-15kb); PCR products; Large DNA (plasmids over ~20 kb, cosmids, lambda clones); Large DNA (P1 clones, BACs, bacterial genomic); siRNA Constructs; Bacterial Genomic DNA; Rolling- Circle preps (e.g. ‘TempliPHI’ or  equivalent); Single Stranded (e.g. M13); DNA fragments (e.g. gel isolated fragments).

Typical OutputOne sequencing run (one template, one primer) typically produces 900 nucleotides of high-quality sequence data or more, for a good quality template and a well-designed primer.
How to RequestLogin through and then choose “Sanger Sequencing” to submit samples.
Sample RequirementsFor our recommended template and primer concentrations, please click here for more information
Typical TurnaroundSamples are usually processed within two business days after receipt.
Critical InformationThe results are returned in two forms: a raw sequence file and a chromatogram file. The sequence file (a flat ASCII text file) is returned to the researcher by electronic mail. The chromatogram file is available on our data server (password protected to prevent unauthorized distribution of your data).
More InformationChromatograms and text files are available for download for 2 weeks after sequencing has been completed from our FTP server, after which the data is auto-deleted. The Advanced Genomics Core keeps all old sequencing data in archival storage, and can retrieve the data upon request by putting it on our FTP server. It will however be auto-deleted after 2 weeks.
