Whole Genome Sequencing

AGRF and the Garvan Institutes Kinghorn Centre for Clinical Genomics (KCCG) are working together to facilitate Australia's access to large whole genome sequencing through our national network. This partnership allows for genomic DNA samples to be submitted to your local AGRF node, for library preparation and Illumina HiSeq X Ten sequencing by KCCG. The whole genome sequencing service is offered on a per sample basis at 30x coverage. 

Our Platforms

AGRF Next Generation Sequencing services are offered over multiple Illumina sequencing platforms including the HiSeq and MiSeq.

Illumina HiSeq: This platform is the workhorse of Next Generation Sequencing. Also available in rapid mode via HiSeq 2500.

Illumina MiSeq: This platform offers a convenient package of data from small genomes and Illumina paired end sequencing.

Technical Specifications for Platforms

Sample preparation options

We offer sample preparation via a range of library kits. Each library is avaliable at up to 96 samples per lane.

DNA Sequencing

RNA Sequencing

We also offer Library QC for client prepared libraries. This can be beneficial if your project requires a library type not currently offered as one of our services or if you want to be more experimental at this step.

Our Applications

Sequencing is available over a range of applications.  These include:
