Illumina Sequencing Seminar - NextSeq 2000 Applications for UMN Research

Attend this webinar to learn how to win a NextSeq 2000 P3 200-cycle flow cell for your lab - that’s A BILLION READS of sequencing for FREE. See terms and conditions

Innovations in next-generation sequencing are helping the UMN genomics community ask - and answer - increasingly complex scientific questions.  Over the last 20 years, Illumina has sought to improve sequencing capabilities across the entire workflow, making platforms easier to use while driving down costs. Combined with the latest advances in optics and instrument design, the NextSeq 2000 increases data output and reduces the cost per run, all while maintaining the same high-quality data users have come to expect from the Illumina Systems. 

Attend this webinar to learn more about this newest sequencing platform available at the UMGC. We will show how common and emerging high-throughput sequencing and multi-omic applications can utilize the flexible and scalable NextSeq 2000 system.

  • Overview and cost-benefit of NextSeq 2000 sequencing.
  • Explore applications fit for running on the NextSeq 2000 including:
    • Bulk RNA-Seq and targeted RNA sequencing
    • Epigenetic methods such as ATAC-Seq, ChIP-Seq, and methylation sequencing
    • Single-cell and spatially resolved transcriptomes
  • Introduction to Illumina’s DRAGEN Bio-IT platform.
  • Output comparison with the UMGC’s NovaSeq 6000 and the soon-to-be-released NextSeq 2000 P1 flow cell. 


  • Russ Carmical, Sequencing Specialist, Illumina
  • Aaron Becker, Next-generation Sequencing Service Manager, UMGC
