# Rush turnaround is at the discretion of the GRC and availability depends on projects in queue.  Approval for rush processing requires discussion with the GRC administration prior to project submission and is restricted to RNA-seq projects consisting of 8 (total RNA-seq) or 16 (mRNA-seq) samples only.  Price per sample includes sequencing costs with SER100 and data processing/analysis. 

* Includes SMART-seq amplification and Nextera library preparation.

**NGS library construction only.  We accept sheared/fragmented ChIP purified DNA only.

Contact us for information regarding run options for your given application  Turnaround time depends on sample queue at time of submission and is subject to change based on demand.

** Sequencing costs include basic data processing and analysis:

  • Demultiplexing
  • Read processing (filtering based on complexity and end trimming based on quality scores)
  • Mapping to reference genome using STAR or BWA
  • Differential expression analysis using CuffLinks or EdgeR

Additional analysis support can be provided. Contact us for more information.

**Turnaround time is based on date of sample receipt.**
