RNA-SEQ (Quantification)


An Accessible, Cost Effective Sequencing Solution to Enable Rapid Discovery with Industry Leading Turnaround Times.

Service Description

RNA-Seq (Quantification) is used to reveal the presence and quantity of RNA in a biological sample under specific conditions. Compared to hybridization-based RNA quanti cation method such as microarray, sequencing-based transcriptome detection can quantify gene expression with low background, high accuracy and high levels of reproducibility within a large dynamic range. RNA-Seq (Quantitation) allows the entire transcriptome to be surveyed in a very high-throughput and quantitative manner at single-base resolution.

Sequencing Service Specification

BGI RNA-Sequencing (Quantification) services are executed with the Illumina HiSeq 4000 or with the BGISEQ-500 sequencing system.

Sequencing Details

  • 50bp Single-end sequencing
  • Raw data and bioinformatics analysis are available in standard file formats
  • Advanced and custom bioinformatics data analysis
  • Cloud-based data storage and delivery system
  • ≥20 Million reads per sample recommended

Turn Around Time

  • Typical 30 working days from sample QC acceptance to ltered raw data availability
  • Expedited services are available, contact your local BGI specialist for details

Customer Testimonial

“As the principal investigator on two sequencing projects that are pushing the state-of-the-art (viral discovery using metagenomic sequencing and phylogenomic analysis of 1000 plant species), I cannot expect everything to work on the first iteration but I do expect my sequencing provider to work together with me to correct whatever went wrong regardless of whose fault it was. BGI-Shenzhen does that admirably.” – Dr. GaneKa-Shu Wong, Professor and iCORE Chair in Biosystems Informatics Department of Biological Sciences, University of Alberta
