De novo sequencing
De Novo sequencing allows you to sequence unknown genomes with no reference available in databases, but also to better characterize complex genomesor genomes with physical restructuring.
Our teams guide you on the technology or the mix of technologies to adopt considering your project goals and considering your genome size and complexity.
Traditionally, the de novo sequencing approach is based on the use of GsFLX sequencer which provides long reads, associated with Shotgun or Paired-End (8 or 20kb) libraries. Depending on the purpose of your project and the size of the genome, we can associate shorter reads obtained on Hiseq2500 or Sanger.
