Bulk RNA-seq Library Preparation Services

In collaboration with the DNA Sequencing Facility the GEC offers RNA library preparation services for sequencing on the Illumina NovaSeq 6000 platform.

The following RNA library preparation services are available:

QIAseq miRNA Library Kit
TruSeq Stranded Total & mRNA
SMART-Seq® v4 Ultra® Low Input RNA  / Nextera XT  (ultra-low input)
SMARTer® Stranded Total RNA Sample Prep Kit – Low Input Mammalian
Agilent Sure Select Target Enrichment

We request all new users of our services please contact gecinfo@biotech.wisc.edu to set up a meeting to discuss the proposed project.
