 * RADSeq licence permits library preparation for 'not for profit' research only and commercial applications are specifically excluded. 

In cases where users submit cDNA the standard genomic library prep charge will still apply. For RNA-seq if users prepare their own libraries using Service's reagents, the cost per library will be equal to the library prep cost stated above. In cases where users use their own kits and adaptors, no library prep charge will be levied.
