Research and Collaboration Service
The Genome Sequencing Facility (GSF) provides complete project consultation for optimal experimental design and set up. The GSF is also a research group with experience in customizing experiments and developing new protocols that leverage the latest advances in genomic technology.
The GSF performs all protocols necessary for preparing a biological sample to be sequenced on the Illumina HiSeq 3000 system, Illumina NextSeq 500 and Illumina MiSeq. For next-generation sequencing studies, the GSF provides the library preparation and sequencing for the following applications:
- DNA seq (whole genome de novo sequencing, whole exome sequencing, candidate gene re-sequencing, target sequencing, amplicon sequencing)
- RNA seq (Total RNA sequencing, stranded mRNA sequencing, RIP sequencing, CLIP sequencing)
- Small RNA seq
- ChIP seq
- MBDCap DNA seq
- Single cell DNA & RNA seq
- 16S based metagenomics
- Targeted gene re-sequencing
- Targeted gene expression
- Cancer gene panel
Bioinformatics analysis is available through CBBI (Computational Biology and Bioinformatics Initiative) led by Dr. Yidong Chen.
