DNA Technologies Core: Prices

The Genome Center Cores provide services at three recharge rate scales. The University of California rate scale (UC rates) do apply to all projects paid through UC-system accounts. Non-profit/academic rates do apply to all other non-profit research including government projects. The industry rates apply to all projects paid from for-profit businesses or institutions.  No taxes will apply to these rates.

* All Illumina sequencing runs include the sequencing of up to two index reads up to 8bp in length and demultiplexing.  Please contact Lutz Froenicke lfroenicke@ucdavis.edu.
** In case you want to sequence infrequently used run-types (e.g. SE150) we would require you to use all 8 lanes of the HiSeq flow cell with your samples.  Please inquire.
***  CPF: Clusters passing filter. Each cluster generates one forward and, for paired-end sequencing only, one reverse read.  The yield metrics apply to standard balanced libraries like RNA-seq or genomic libraries.

* Please consult the Sequencing and Sequencing Library pages for more details on these services.  All library preparation and package services include library QC and pooling. The sample QC can be provided by the client or will be carried out at additional cost by the Core. Additional services related to library normalization, bar-coding, and other manipulations are available – please contact Lutz Froenicke (lfroenicke@ucdavis.edu). Fluidigm EP1 System genotyping prices are based on a combination of charges 1) Fluidigm materials and reagents, which will vary depending on the format and scale of the project, and 2) IFC chip assay processing costs (shown above). For detailed pricing information contact Vanessa Rashbrook VKRashbrook@ucdavis.eduInfinium genotyping prices are based on a combination of charges 1) Illumina materials & reagents and 2) chip processing costs. Please contact Vanessa Rashbrook VKRashbrook@ucdavis.edu for a quote.
** More information on training found at this site. Non-UCD users must submit a PO (customer name, institution, description of work, approx. $ amount, and PO#) before services can be initiated. In case of questions, please contact Jen Stevens at our Business Office Administration (JenStevens@ucdavis.edu). We now also accept credit cards. Prices current as of August 30th, 2017.
