Genomics and Sequencing Core
Recent advances in genome sequencing and high-throughput technology to analyze gene expression have placed biology at the forefront of modern science. The Genomics and Sequencing Core provides services, reagents and expertise to perform assays ranging from small-scale to large-scale analysis of gene expression and sequence data, microRNA detection, detection of SNPs and somatic mutations, TaqMan Low Density Arrays, and HIV and other viral quantitation. Projects related to HIV research are given additional assistance.
The Genomics and Sequencing Core is equipped with the following instruments:
Agilent Bioanalyzer 2100
Techne TC-4000 & multiple other Thermal Cyclers
Applied Biosystems 7500 and 7900HT Real-time PCR systems (with multiple block types)
2 Bio-Rad (formerly QuantaLife) Digital PCR instruments
Ion Torrent Personal Genome Machine & Ion Server
Illumina MiSeq Desktop Sequencer
The Genomics and Sequencing Core services include:
Validation of gene expression data and absolute quantitation of gene copy numbers using real-time quantitative qPCR technology (TaqMan and SYBRGreen) and droplet digital PCR (ddPCR).
Ion Torrent PGM next generation sequencing assays, including viral genotyping, miRNA expression, and AmpliSeq™ and custom resequencing for detection of SNPs & somatic mutations.
