Overview of Services

Since 2002, the Arizona Genomics Institute's Service Center produces genomics datasets, focusing on plants and crops.

The most common services are long-read DNA sequencing and DNA and RNA extraction.
AGI runs two PacBio sequencers (Revio and Sequel II), together with all ancillary instruments (Agilent Femto Pulse, Diagenode Megaruptor, Sage Science Pippin HT, and more) that enable AGI to produce the high-quality sequencing data for which it is known for worldwide.
Other services include transcriptome sequencing (PacBio Iso-Seq), amplicon sequencing, and PacBio 16S sequencing (V1-V9 region).

Before preparing your sample for a project, we recommend our customers to consult the recommendations here or to reach out to AGI directly for more details.
