Default Illumina Hi/MiSeq turn around times

We have 1 HiSeq and I was wondering for times when we are bottlenecked, which core facilities have capacity to serve other universities that can do human WGS on HiSeq or human exome capture. What are the typical turnaround times. Would it make a difference if I sent DNA or I did my own library prep? Rough cost of WGS versus exome (ballpark?). Turn around time is most important though.

We sent off some WGS samples to the IGN which has an incredibly long turn around time (16-20 weeks). Often we do not care but in some cases it would be nice to have samples processed sooner.

This post might have been better suited for the service provider section as I suppose I am not opposed to a commercial entity doing the sequencing. I probably would prefer working with a core facility though.

Perhaps we need to start a section where entities can post when they are likely to have spare capacity available and cost per run.

I assume this would work best for ready to run libraries that can get on the instrument in a day or two after receipt.

We generally have a backlog of libraries but sometimes find a machine or two idling for some time when libraries are not ready to run.

Here's a site that I have not used that can help facilitate selling extra capacity: http://blueseq.com/

Hi Adaptive,

Have you found spare capacity?
