Illumina HiSeq 2500 (2 of 2)

More information.

The lab has use of two Illumina HiSeq 2500 sequencers, the state-of-the-art platform for whole genome sequencing. The HiSeq 2500 System is the first Illumina sequencing system to feature two run modes - rapid-run and high-output run mode - for one or two flow cells simultaneously, enabling a flexible and scalable platform. Rapid-run mode provides quick results, efficient processing of a limited number of samples, and longer paired-end 150 base pair reads, which allow greater depth of coverage and improved assembly for de novo applications. High-output mode is perfect for larger studies with more samples or when the greatest depth of coverage is required. High-output mode allows batch processing of ~5x more samples than rapid-mode and enables completion of large projects with the fewest runs possible. Multiple HiSeq 2500 configurations allow tuneable output from ~10 Gb or ~300 million single-end reads in seven hours to 600 Gb or six billion paired-end reads in eleven days depending on application needs or project deadlines.
