Fast and Cost-Effective Bacterial Sequencing
The upgrade of the Illumina MiSeq promises 250 bp reads with a turnaround time in the paired-end module of ~ 35 hours. This upgrade is planned for Q3 so any day now it could happen.
Anyway I think that already the current version is an excellent alternative to other technologies when sequencing of bacterial genomes is of interest.
Since we only have the MiSeq since several weeks we want to add a bonus to bacterial sequencing on the MiSeq in our new special. The special delivers 2x 150 bp paired-end module reads for 2, 3, or 4 bacterial samples. The bioinformatic analysis like mapping against a reference genome and SNP/InDel detection can be ordered optinally. If you are interested in this special order before September 30th and profit from a 10% discount. Read more about our special here.
