Variant Discovery

Variant discovery has applications in a number of areas.  For research in model organisms, variant discovery projects are typically interested in finding rare mutations in genes responsible for Mendelian diseases or cancer.  For research into non-model organisms variant discovery projects are focused on finding SNPs or microsatellites that could be used as breeding/population markers.  Once discovered these markers can be genotyped rapidly and affordably using other approaches.  We offer methods to reduce genome complexity (i.e. RADSeq) allowing affordable discovery projects on large genomes.

The service is carried out using our Next Generation sequencing Illumina HiSeq and MiSeq platforms.
