Facility Details

The Genomics Core Facility seeks to achieve high quality research data production through education of core facility users, optimal use of qPCR and RNA/DNA quality and quantity instrumentation, and quality Sanger sequencing, next-generation sequencing, robotics, and microarray services. Services are provided to internal and external researchers.

The Genomics Core Facility (GCF) provides the following:

Sanger and next-generation DNA sequencing
DNA fragment analysis
qualitative and quantitative analysis of DNA, protein, and RNA samples
quantitative PCR
microarray RNA labeling, hybridization, and scanning
bioinformatics services
Individual and small group training and consultation services are offered for sequence analysis, real-time PCR, next-generation sequencing and microarray analysis.

The GCF laboratory services are available to any researcher. The goal of the GCF is to provide high quality service at low cost to facilitate research. Use of the Genomics Core Facility services are scheduled on a first come, first serve basis. The wait time for instrument use is rarely more than one day and is frequently shorter.
