Exciting News!  Illumina NovaSeq high throughput sequencing system is here

The UT Genomics Core (UTGC), along with the Center for Biotechnology (CEB) and the Office of Research, Innovation, and Economic Development (ORIED) are pleased to announce the arrival of the Illumina NovaSeq high throughput sequencing system.  Paired with the existing Illumina MiSeq in the UTGC housed in the Science and Engineering building, the NovaSeq expands the sequencing capacity on campus to include large genomes and RNASeq projects.  Users can prepare their own libraries for sequencing on the NovaSeq or contact Core facility staff for assistance with project design and library builds.  Contact Veronica Brown at genomciscore@utk.edu for more information.

Illumina will be hosting a seminar from 11-12 on Wednesday, April 6 in room 262A in the Student Union to talk about the capabilities of the NovaSeq. Join us afterwards for an open house beginning at 1:30 pm to see the NovaSeq and the UT Genomics Core high-throughput lab in their new location in 407 Science and Engineering building.

To register for the virtual seminar option:


This instrument was purchased through an NSF-MRI proposal with support from the departments of Microbiology, BCMB, EEB, CEB, GST, UTIA, College of Arts and Sciences, and the UTK Office of Research.
