Facility Details

The WVU Core Genomics Facility is a not-for-profit facility available to all researchers at West Virginia University, funded in part by an NIH COBRE Grant to the WVU Center for Neuroscience headed by Dr. George Spirou. Additional funding is provided by the Department of Biology, the College of Arts and Sciences, and the WVU Health Sciences Center. The facility performs next generation sequencing using an Illumina MiSeq instrument. We also run sequencing reactions and fragment analysis on an ABI model 3130XL genetic analyzer, as well as microarray analysis using the Affymetrix GeneChip system. We provide numerous services ot researchers, including consulting on experimental design, sample preparation, library construction, preparation of sequencing reactions, running of sequencing assays, and downstream bioinformatics analysis. We maintain several compute servers with a large suite of Bioinformatics software to facilitate a wide range of genome-scale analyses. We also have equipment available for self-service use, including a Real-Time PCR machine, a spectrophotometer, and a gel documentation system. The facility is staffed by two permanent full-time managers and a faculty director.
