BGI Tech Offers More Cost-Effective Sequencing with Time-Limited Promotions on RNA-Seq Services

RNA sequencing

BGI, one of the world’s leading genomics services providers, has announced a range of RNA sequencing services offered at reduced prices, available until 30 June 2014.

The total RNA sequencing service, which covers the whole transcriptome (long non-coding RNA and mRNA) as well as miRNA, allows researchers to save up to $1800/sample. For RNA-Seq transcriptome analysis (mRNA) and RNA-Seq quantification (mRNA) services, the time-limited offers start at only $450/sample. All offers are available in Europe and the Americas.

BGI offers a well-proven service with strict QC at every step so researchers can be sure of the data they get, which is why BGI has sequenced over 60,000 RNA-Seq samples to date. With over 1000 bioinformaticians on hand, the company also offers the strongest analytical support, with customized analysis available on request.

For researchers who need data from the entire transcriptome for an in-depth understanding of an RNA-level regulation network, the total RNA sequencing service provides comprehensive analysis covering all transcripts. In addition to the normal analysis of miRNA and mRNA, the BGI service also provides analysis of long non-coding RNA assembly, quantification and function prediction. The offer is valid for a minimum of five samples, with a turnaround time of 8 weeks.

BGI’s offer on the RNA-Seq quantification (mRNA) service covers 50 bp single-end sequencing on the HiSeq 2000 or Ion Proton, and is available for 10M to 40M clean reads including library construction and sequencing. In-depth bioinformatics analysis is also available at only $125/sample, including data filtering and QC, gene expression quantification, differential gene expression analysis, gene ontology and pathway analysis. Group differential expression analysis is also performed at no extra cost.

The RNA-Seq transcriptome analysis (mRNA) offer is available for 10M to 40M clean reads including library construction and sequencing, and involves 100 bp paired-end sequencing on the HiSeq 2000. Comprehensive bioinformatics analysis can be provided from only $200/sample, including data filtering and QC, gene expression quantification, differential gene expression analysis, gene ontology and pathway analysis, identification of alternatively spliced and novel transcripts, SNP calling and annotation, and gene fusion analysis.

For both RNA-Seq quantification and RNA-Seq transcriptome analysis, BGI can complete library construction, sequencing and standard bioinformatics analysis within 6-8 weeks for up to 400 samples, with a minimum order of 20 samples.
