Sequencing

Overview

Sequencing is the process of determining the order of nucleotide bases (A,C,T, and G) within a stretch of DNA. Sequencing the entire complement of DNA, or genome, of many animal, plant, and microbial species is indispensable for basic biological and medical research. Illumina offers a variety of sequencing instruments, kits, and data analysis solutions for characterizing the genome, epigenome, and transcriptome.

DNA Sequencing

Characterize genes, regions, or entire genomes with proven solutions for whole-genome or targeted sequencing, including exomes, amplicons, and de novo studies.

RNA Sequencing

Revolutionize gene expression profiling and transcriptome analysis with RNA sequencing. Align reads across splice junctions to identify isoforms and fusions. Quantify both rare and common transcripts. Derive precise strand information, and sequence low-quality or FFPE samples.
