Sequencing may be utilized to determine the order of nucleotides in small targeted genomic regions or entire genomes. Illumina sequencing enables a wide variety of applications, allowing researchers to ask virtually any question related to the genome, transcriptome, or epigenome of any organism. Next-generation sequencing (NGS) methods differ primarily by how the DNA or RNA samples are prepared and the data analysis options used.
Find the right sequencer to advance your research.
Analyze the entire genome, focus on regions of interest with whole-exome and targeted sequencing, or study DNA-protein interactions.
Take advantage of a broad range of techniques, from targeted RNA to single-cell and whole-transcriptome sequencing.
Both genome-wide analysis and targeted approaches can provide insight into methylation patterns at a single nucleotide level.
