Maastricht, May 2012

The unit Clinical Genomics of the Department of Clinical Genetics (MaastrichtUMC) is happy to announce the purchase of the Illumina HiSeq2000,
one of the most powerful next-generation DNA-sequencers currently available (www.illumina.com/systems/hiseq_systems.ilmn). The sequencer
has a capacity of 600Gbase per run, equivalent to 100 human genomes. We expect to perform 36 runs yearly, generating an immense capacity
for targeted or exome sequencing, but also for other applications, like RNA-Seq. The system is up and running and our team of 4 bioinformaticians
is currently finalizing the data-analysis pipeline.
The sequencer will be used for diagnostic and research applications and anybody, who is interested in using the system, please feel free to contact us
(contact:
rosy.engelen@maastrichtuniversity.nl). At regular intervals, technical support from Illumina will be around to discuss planned or ongoing sequencing
projects with individual researchers. The availability of an Illumina HiSeq2000 sequencer has already attracted attention within the Euregio and
molecular geneticists from GIGA (University of LiŤge), with whom we closely collaborate, plan to use our system on a monthly basis.
