Additional Resource - Next Generation Sequence Analysis

Next generation sequencing (NGS) has become a widely used research tool, but analysis is costly, time-consuming, and requires rigorous statistical analysis for knowledge extraction and publication. I provide project-scale NGS analysis assistance for research labs at Yale. 



Highlights:
  1. Quality and reliability: We offer expertise on analysing big data from NGS and other high-throughput technology, and a strong background in genetics and molecular biology.
  2. Timeline control: Timelines for deliverables are discussed and set before project initiation.  Most analyses are finished within two months.
  3. Flexible, in-person discussion: I can work on-site to enhance communication.
  4. Affordable: The analysis operates at the project scale, with no long-term contract required.  The cost of each project is directly related to my effort over the project timeline.
Standard Analyses Provided
RNA-seq: 
for differential expression, alternative splicing.
ChIP-seq: 
for binding sites of transcription factors and modified histones.
Exome-seq: 
for somatic mutations, copy number variations.
Microbial-sequencing: 
16S/18S rDNA sequencing for taxonomy assignment, alpha-diversity, beta-diversity.
Others: 
miRNA-seq, whole genome sequencing, target sequencing, genotyping array, expression array, and more.
