The sequencing machine queues reflect those libraries that have been loaded on a sequencer or are scheduled to load that week. Data is generally returned within 24 (weekdays/non-holiday) hours post run. These sample tables reflect all sample received by the GSL. If you believe your sample should be listed and is not present, please do let us know (gsl-fgl@berkeley.edu). Samples sent for library prep and sequencing will first appear in the library prep tabs and then move into the sequencing machine tabs, library prep to sequencing generally takes 4-6 weeks depending on the size of the project.

Last minute changes or instrument problems may occur and delay the running of libraries. Prioritization is generally first-come first-serve once QC has cleared. However, sample priortization does take in account such things as requested number of lanes.

You may refer to previous completed samples in the queue to get an estimate of your wait time. Note that the “sequenced date” is the date that a run loads and NOT the data of the data return. To expedite the data return process, please ensure you have filled out a submission form in its entirety and any user qc/indexes have been emailed to us upon submission.
