RNA Sequencing and Transcriptional Analysis for total RNA or mRNA

mRNA is fragmented, converted to cDNA, and barcoded.  Maximum number of reads is 22-25 million.  Note:  The Miseq is designed for organisms with smaller genomes and may not be suitable for RNA-seq if you are working with mouse or human.  Please inquire if you are not sure of your requirements.


Library Generation: $470/library
300 cycle (2 X 150) – $1045/run

If you prefer a different number of cycles:
600 cycle (2 x 300) – $1540/run
500 cycle (2 x 250) – $1210/run
50 cycle (2 x 25) – $820/run

Mapping and Differential Expression: $200/sample
Custom analysis: $50/hour

Sample Preparation:

RNA should be of very high quality with a RIN value of 8.0 or above.

If your RNA is polyadenylated (i.e. eukaryotic), we recommend Qiagen’s RNeasy kit.
Please provide at least 1ug of total RNA in less than 50ul.

If your RNA is non-polyadenylated (i.e. prokaryotic) you will need to do a depletion of your ribosomal RNA.  We recommend Illumina’s Ribozero Kit.  Please provide 5ul of pre-depleted sample when submitting sample for quality check and 100ng of depleted sample.

Sample Submission:

All requests must be submitted through iLab.  See the links below for your particular institution.
