Dear Users,

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.

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]]

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.

Thank you all for your support,

Dear Users,

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 our website

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.

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.

Thank you all for your support,
-Stuart Levine
