I’m looking for labs/companies that provide comparative genomic analysis between two different species, AND do so for the “paying” public. I am looking to test a hypothesis regarding genetic expression and would appreciate any direction. Thanks!

  • $\begingroup$ Thanks for the reply. Yes, tissue, and a budget of appx. $5000.00. But I honestly have no idea how much labs might charge. $\endgroup$ – user11048038 Feb 12 at 19:49
  • $\begingroup$ Well first figure out what kind of work you need done. If you have tissue, you'll need extractions done. If you're doing NGS you also need the library prepared and a sequencer ran. Then multiply that cost by the number of samples. At Duke's NGS core, for example, RNA-seq with library prep on their MiSeq instrument for 10 samples will cost you around 15,000. Extractions will probably be extra. I've seen companies push QIAcube extractions for around $65 a sample. $\endgroup$ – CKM Feb 12 at 22:01

Earlham Institute have the expertise for this work. They primarily work in public-funded research but they carried out private-sector work in the past.
