Solicitation #: 12661219Q0008
"The need is for Illumina paired-end 150-base pair sequencing on a HiSeq4000 or equivalent (patterned flow cell) sequencing system. Each of 9-15 bee samples should be sequenced on a single lane with each lane producing at least 450 million paired-end reads and 135 Gb of high-quality sequence data. Each sample will be multiplexed using dual 8-bp indexes and TruSeqHT-compatible adapters. Samples will be submitted as nearly ready-to-sequence samples, with the sequencing center only having to perform standard QC assessments (qPCR quantification and fragment analysis) prior to sequencing. The resulting sequence data should be provided in FASTQ format and include dual 8-bp index read information, allowing for sample demultiplexing by the end user. The data do not need to be demultiplexed by the sequencing center. The total turnaround time from sample submission to data delivery should be no more than 12 business days."
