Small RNA Illumina sequencing, with bioinformatic analysis

Location: Italy
Description : Small noncoding RNAs act in gene silencing and post-transcriptional regulation of gene expression. Small RNA sequencing (RNA-Seq) is a technique to isolate and sequence small RNA species: miRNAs, siRNAs, piRNAs, and snoRNAs with a size range of 20 to 30 nucleotides, that play a crucial role in regulating gene expression.

Long-read DNA sequencing by Nanopore, with bioinformatic analysis

Location: Italy
Description : Long-read sequencing technologies are capable of producing long sequencing reads with average fragment lengths of over 10,000 base-pairs and maximum lengths reaching 100,000 base- pairs. Compared with short reads, the assemblies obtained from long-read sequencing platforms have much higher contig continuity and genome completeness as long fragments are able to extend paths into problematic or repetitive regions.

Small RNA Illumina sequencing

Description : Small noncoding RNAs act in gene silencing and post-transcriptional regulation of gene expression. Small RNA sequencing (RNA-Seq) is a technique to isolate and sequence small RNA species: miRNAs, siRNAs, piRNAs, and snoRNAs with a size range of 20 to 30 nucleotides that play a crucial role in regulating gene expression. Ideal for the discovery and the profiling of all forms of small non-coding RNAs and to examine the differential expression of all small RNAs in a given sample.

Metagenomic Illumina sequencing of 16S rRNA gene amplicons

Description : Metagenomics is the characterization of microbial biodiversity that is present within a given sample. Metagenomic sequencing is a well-established method that allows the phylogeny and the taxonomy of samples from complex microbiomes or environments that are difficult or impossible to study like un-culturable microorganisms by the sequencing of 16S ribosomal RNA genes. Sequence variation in the prokaryotic 16S ribosomal RNA gene (16S rRNA) is widely used to characterize microbial communities. The v3-v4 regions of the 16S rRNA gene will be amplified and sequenced on an Illumina MiSeq instrument using 250 paired – end protocol. A limited-cycle PCR reaction uses primers designed against the surrounding conserved regions of v3-v4 to amplify the insert DNA. The PCR reaction also adds index sequences on both ends of the DNA, thus enabling dual-indexed sequencing of pooled libraries on Illumina MiSeq instrument.

DNA Illumina sequencing

Description : Whole genome sequencing or amplicon-based sequencing allow, respectively, the analysis of the entire genome or of specific sections by amplicons. Amplicon sequencing is useful for the characterization of individual attributes, for example species by ITS2 or insecticide resistance genotypes, in pooled population samples of vectors.

RNAseq total transcriptome Illumina sequencing

Description : RNA-seq allows the gene-expression profiling and the characterization of coding and non-coding transcripts to test differential expression across study groups. Total RNA-Seq analyzes both coding and multiple forms of noncoding RNA for a comprehensive view of the transcriptome. Benefits of RNA sequencing analysis are: (i) captures both known and novel features; (ii) allows researchers to identify biomarkers across the broadest range of transcripts; (iii) enables a more comprehensive understanding of phenotypes of interest; (iv) allows profiling of the transcriptome across a wide dynamic range.
