The Illumina MiSeq is a high throughput, NGS benchtop instrument which integrates amplification, sequencing, and data analysis in a single run. A single run can produce output data of up to 15Gb in ~4 hours runtime and can complete up to 25 M single reads and 50 M paired-end reads. The MiSeq can be used for applications such as targeted resequencing, small genome sequencing, RNA sequencing, targeted gene expression profiling, library QC, and ChIP-seq.
