NGS Library Creation

The true power of Next-generation Sequencing (NGS) is derived from the diversity of library creation methods available. There exist hundreds of NGS library creation methods tailored to different experimental approaches, with numerous commercial kits and variations for each method.

The UMGC offers common library prep methods as “standard” services with a fixed price and established expectations for turnaround and performance. However, we encourage researchers to contact us with requests for protocols they do not find here, as we are able to provide many of these as “custom” services.

At the left, we list the subset of “standard” and “high-throughput” workflows that are offered as routine services in the UMGC. For an introduction to library creation methods, see the Illumina methods review.
