At Edinburgh Genetics, we provide a full range of Next Generation Sequencing (NGS) life science research related services, including:

  • WGS
  • WES
  • WGBS
  • RNA-Seq
  • Targeted Sequencing

We work with governments, international organisations and corporations to provide innovative research in animals and plants.

Whole Genome Sequencing (WGS)

WGS is the analysis of the entire genomic DNA sequence of a cell at a single time, providing the most comprehensive characterisation of the genome.

Whole Exome Sequencing (WES)

WES is a genomic technique for sequencing all of the protein-coding regions of genes in a genome.

Whole Genome Bisulfite Sequencing (WGBS)

WGBS is used to determine the DNA methylation status of single cytosines by treating the DNA with sodium bisulfite before sequencing. This technique measures single-cytosine methylation levels genome-wide and directly estimates the ratio of molecules methylated rather than enrichment levels. 


RNA-Seq is a technique that can examine the quantity and sequences of RNA in a sample using next generation sequencing (NGS). It analyzes the transcriptome of gene expression patterns encoded within our RNA.

Targeted sequencing

Targeted sequencing focuses on amplicons and specific genes of particular interest.
