Primary Data QC

Ensuring high data quality through a rigorous QC at the OGC

The quality of the sequencing data generated at the Oxford Genomics Centre (OGC) is analysed using an in-house developed primary Quality Control (QC) pipeline. Depending on the library type,…more

Read-to-index mis-assignment


The Oxford Genomics Centre (OGC) has been generating sequencing data using Illumina’s high-throughput technologies since 2008. Over these years the combined experience within the group and relationship with its end users has enabled the OGC…more

Microbial DNA sequencing


Microbial DNA sequencing: individual clones and metagenomics

In 2010 the Oxford Genomics Centre partnered with the Modernising Medical Microbiology consortium in a bid to translate advances in sequencing technologies into diagnostic tools for tracking the spread of hospital infections.…more

Quality Checking Metric Examples


Submitting samples

When we receive samples, whether they are DNA, RNA or Premade libraries, they first undergo our quality control (QC) assays before being processed by the Library Preparation Team or Sequencing Team. Performing these assays…more

A colorimetric method to determine efficiency of FACS sorting


The colorimetric method (Rodrigues et al, 2016) can be used to determine the efficiency of FACS sorting into 96- and 384-well plates. It’s an inexpensive method that uses 3, 3′, 5, 5′- Tetramethylbenzidine (TMB) and…more

Epigenetic analysis on Illumina EPIC arrays


Epigenetics is one of the hottest fields in life sciences. From academic publications to the mainstream media, it has the ability to fill in some of the gaps in scientific knowledge and has huge potential…more
