The Children's Hospital of Philadelphia and the Beijing Genomics Institute (BGI) have formed a collaborative genome center entitled BGI@CHOP. Together, these elements form The High-throughput Sequencing (HTS) Core with increased capacity, expertise and analytical resources for conducting next-generation sequencing studies.

The HTS Core provides automated library construction and high-quality, high-throughput sequencing services for whole genome, whole exome, target region sequencing, transcriptome and RNA-Seq samples. See Services for further details and for other sequencing applications.

Standard services include 100 x 100 paired-end runs on HiSeq 4000 and HiSeq 2500 instruments and 150 x 150 paired-end runs on HiSeq 4000 instrument with basic bioinformatic analysis to assess run quality. Fee-for-service bioinformatic analysis is also available upon request.
