Sequencing Costs

  1.  The cost of making 100 amplicon libraries and pooling them for a single MiSeq PE250 run is approximately $1700. This includes the cost for DNA extraction, PCR primers and reagents, and the sequencing.
  2. The cost of making 24 (meta)genomic libraries, using the Nextera XT kit (required for low-input samples) and pooling them for a single MiSeq PE250 run is approximately $2100.
  3. The cost of making 24 (meta)genomic libraries, using the TruSeq kit (preferred for high-input samples) and pooling them for a single MiSeq PE250 run is approximately $2600.

The above estimates are based on the numbers provided below, plus a little bit of rounding up for incidentals and labor and such.

HiSeq 2500 – SR50 (Single Read 50 cycles)        $905

HiSeq 2500 – PE100 (Paired End 100 cycles)        $2040

    Hello!
    We would like to sequence the whole metagenome of different microbial consortia, can you provide the service to external institutions?

    • We can help people do this type of work but don’t do such things as a service per se (interested in collaborations where we are involved in the science). Send email to jonathan dot eisen at gmail dot com
