DNA Sequencing Facility

The UW-Madison Biotechnology Center is currently open and following the university's COVID-19 Response regarding campus operations.



Service Description

ChIP-Seq (chromatin immunoprecipitation sequencing) allows for genome-wide mapping of DNA binding proteins and histone modifications. It is primarily used to determine how proteins influence the mechanisms that cause phenotypic appearance. The advantage of ChIP-Seq over other assays is that ChIP-Seq does not require prior knowledge of the epigenome. 


For this service, researchers are responsible for submitting properly fragmented and immunoprecipitated DNA for library preparation to be completed. ChIP-Seq can be run on our Illumina NovaSeq or MiSeq.

EXTERNAL RATES: Clients not affiliated with UW Madison or the University of Wisconsin system are charged a 55% surcharge for all labor and incidentals provided; prices are as listed above.  This surcharge is subject to change.

Illumina pricing is broken into two components: library preparation and run cost.  Library preparation is charged on a per sample basis and varies by type.  Run charges are based on the length of the sequencing run and whether it is single or paired end.  Prices are subject to change due to increasing reagent costs.
