Dear Users,<BR><BR>
 
This month, though the generous contributions of Penny Chisholm and Chris Burge, we are pleased to announce the addition of an Illumina HiSeq2000 to our sequencing capacity. We have been testing the HiSeq for a couple months and have been able to obtain over 100,000 usable reads per lane. This service is now available to all CORE lab members. For those labs that do not require a full lane for each sample, we also can provide multiplexing of samples as part of our sample preparation service. More information about the HiSeq and multiplexing can be found on our website.<BR><BR>
 
  
The Technology Seminar Series is also continuing on. The seminar series is designed to showcase a different technology in the facility each week and to bring you up to date on the latest advances and future directions of the technology. The seminar is at noon in 68-180 on Mondays and lunch will be provided. We have asked the companies we have invited to bring their scientists to speak (not the sales team) so you have a chance to interact with them directly. The current list of speakers can be found [[BioMicroCenter:Technology_Seminar_Series|on our website]]<BR><BR>

First, this month begins a year long experiment in joining the BioMicro Center Informatics team and the KI Bioinformatics and Computing Core in to a single team. Our two teams have been collaborating for several years, sharing computational infrastructure, etc. but this year we will be formalizing and expanding the relationship with the goal of creating a more efficient unified core. Informatics analysis requests should still be sent to Charlie Whittaker or to myself as usual, but will be spread across the joint team based on expertise and on availability. You are also, as always, welcome to contact any of the informatics scientists directly. We hope this will allow us to reduce waiting times and to keep costs under control. <BR><BR>
 +
During the trial period (and hopefully going forward), pricing for informatics will be available in two flavors. First, for projects needing routine work, the subsidized rate will be $70/h for all CORE members (Biology, BE, KI, CEHS). For more involved projects, we have second option to purchase a “share” of the informatics team. This is an annual commitment for a fraction of an informaticist and will cost $960/mo for an average of 4h/week of informatics support. The monthly usage levels do not have to be exact and can be used in large blocks. The hours in the share can be used with any member of the team and the informaticist can vary from project to project.  <BR><BR>
 +
Finally, and importantly, we will be changing the way we are storing Illumina sequencing data long term. In the past, we have saved the fastq, sam and bam files, along with the quality control data, in a zipped file. These zipped files now occupy over 50TB of storage which is limiting  how we are able to handle new sequencing runs. To address this, we will be deleting the fastq and sam files from the archive and storing only the binary bam and quality control files. The fastq and sam files can be regenerated rapidly from the bam files using Picard and SamTools (though reads may not be in the same order). As always, we strongly encourage you to keep your own copy of the Illumina data and use our version only as a backup. We will begin this conversion next week.
 +
If you have any concerns, please do not hesitate to contact me.
  
Finally, we have been able to negotiate a lower rate for the reagents for Illumina sample preparation. This price reduction went in to effect on Nov 1st and is listed on our website. We are always looking for ways we can reduce the cost of our services without compromising quality.
 
As a reminder, this email only goes out to people who are have used the BioMicro Center within the past couple years. Please feel free to forward this message on to anyone else who might be interested.<BR><BR>

Dear Users,<BR><BR>
 
Today marks the beginning of our Technology Seminar Series. This seminar series is designed to showcase a different technology in the facility each week and to bring you up to date on the latest advances and future directions of the technology. This week’s speaker is from Nanostring which makes the nCounter, an imaging system that allows direct visualization of hybridization reactions. The seminar is at noon in 68-180 and lunch will be provided.  We have asked the companies we have invited to bring their scientists to speak (not the sales team) so you have a chance to interact with them directly. Following Nanostring will be Beckman-Coulter Genomics and then NuGEN. The current list of speakers can be found on [[BioMicroCenter:Technology_Seminar_Series|our website]]<BR><BR>
 
This past month, though the generous contributions of Chris Burge, Ernest Fraenkel and The Koch Institute we were able to add a new robot for Illumina sample preparation. The Beckman-Coulter SPRI-TE handles many of the routine steps in preparing Illumina libraries, including size selection. The SPRI-TE is available either as part of our DNA sample preparation services or as an a la carte service. You can learn more on our website and next week at the seminar.<BR><BR>
 
Finally, this month we will be saying goodbye to Allison Perrotta who has been a technician in the BioMicro Center for the past two years. Allison was instrumental in setting up our Illumina sequencers and has been involved in setting up our sample preparation service. We are currently conducting a search for her replacement (please send any good candidates our way) but we will miss her very much.<BR><BR>
 
Thank you all for your support,<BR>

BioMicro Center News

JANUARY 9, 2013

Happy new years to everyone. A couple new things happening in BioMicro that we want to make everyone aware of.

First, this month begins a year long experiment in joining the BioMicro Center Informatics team and the KI Bioinformatics and Computing Core in to a single team. Our two teams have been collaborating for several years, sharing computational infrastructure, etc. but this year we will be formalizing and expanding the relationship with the goal of creating a more efficient unified core. Informatics analysis requests should still be sent to Charlie Whittaker or to myself as usual, but will be spread across the joint team based on expertise and on availability. You are also, as always, welcome to contact any of the informatics scientists directly. We hope this will allow us to reduce waiting times and to keep costs under control.

During the trial period (and hopefully going forward), pricing for informatics will be available in two flavors. First, for projects needing routine work, the subsidized rate will be $70/h for all CORE members (Biology, BE, KI, CEHS). For more involved projects, we have second option to purchase a “share” of the informatics team. This is an annual commitment for a fraction of an informaticist and will cost $960/mo for an average of 4h/week of informatics support. The monthly usage levels do not have to be exact and can be used in large blocks. The hours in the share can be used with any member of the team and the informaticist can vary from project to project.

Finally, and importantly, we will be changing the way we are storing Illumina sequencing data long term. In the past, we have saved the fastq, sam and bam files, along with the quality control data, in a zipped file. These zipped files now occupy over 50TB of storage which is limiting how we are able to handle new sequencing runs.
