About NGS Core

Establishment of the BRC NGS Core Facility

The core lab was established at Biodiversity Research Center in 2008 as a research core facility to support internal NGS sequencing projects, starting with two NGS platforms, Roche 454 GS FLX and Illumina GA II. The sequencing capacity was also open to meet the sequencing request within Academia Sinica.

In 2013 Academia Sinica initiated a review process and selected our core as the representative NGS servicing core. In November we relocated to the newly constructed lab in the Interdisciplinary Building along with the Biodiversity Research Center.

We are open to provide NGS service campus-wide, and can accept intramural funding as well as extramural funding via the Equipment Center system.

We thank the High Throughput Sequencing Core hosted in the Biodiversity Research Center at Academia Sinica for performing the NGS experiments.
