WideSeq — An inexpensive Next Generation Sequencing (NGS) service.

To submit your samples for WideSeq please use this submission page.

The advantage of WideSeq over Sanger Sequencing of a plasmid (for example) is as follows:

Sanger Sequencing generally produces 1 or 2 ~800 base reads from you plasmid. This gives you only the sequence near the sequence priming sites you have chosen:



WideSeq involves the construction of a NGS library from your sample which then is sequenced in its entirety. Our software can assemble this large number of reads back into larger (wide) sequences — possibly a signal contig representing the sequence of your entire plasmid:
