About NGS Core

Establishment of the BRC NGS Core Facility

Our NGS Genomics core lab was established at Biodiversity Research Center in 2008 as a research core facility for 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 requests within Academia Sinica.

Our core was promoted by Academia Sinica as the service core in late 2013. We are now housed in the Interdisciplinary Building. Our core has won “Excellent Performance Core” in 2015, 2016, and 2017.

We provide NGS service campus-wide, and are also open to extramural NGS service requests as well.

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