Ion_Proton-300x226

The DNA Sequencing Core offers next generation sequencing using the Ion Torrent Proton (added in May of 2013). The Proton is ideal for larger sequencing runs that don’t fit well on the smaller PGM. These types of runs include human exomes, more multiplexed samples, targeted resequencing, and smaller genomes (i.e. C.elegans, etc). Run output will vary based upon the parameters requested by the client and other variables such as library quality. Run output will range from a few Gigabases of data through approximately 17 Gigabases or more of data currently. Costs will vary by project, but general costs are listed here. Please contact us for specific projects.

Human Exome Sequencing $600/sample when 16 samples are run (current Ion Torrent offer) + core labor

 

Current prices assume running 2 exomes per P1 chip. This assumes use of the Ion Torrent Ampliseq Exome Kit.

The DNA Sequencing Core also offers custom runs based upon our clients’ needs. To plan any runs please contact Derek Warner at 801-581-4736 or at dwarner@cores.utah.edu.
