Genomics Core Facility

Next-generation sequencing (NGS) is becoming the reference of medical genomics. Our two next-generation sequencers, MiSeq (Illumina) and GS Junior (454 Roche), fulfil small-scale NGS project needs. We also offer Sanger sequencing and small/medium-throughput real-time PCR services, which continue to be highly required by users, and other minor DNA and RNA procedures. 

Small genome de novo sequencing
Targeted or exome resequencing
ChIP-seq and small RNA-seq
Structural variation analysis
Targeted transcriptomics and metagenomics.
Ancient DNA sequencing
Genotyping, Gene expression, microRNA and Digital PCR analysis (real-time PCR)
Sanger sequencing and Fragment analysis
DNA, cDNA and RNA quantification and quality assessment
Robotic procedures for DNA normalization and PCR or sequence clean-up
