The goal of the Genomics Core Facility is to enable SLU investigators to use whole genome methods in their research. Our services uses high-throughput nextgen DNA sequencing with the Ion Torrent ProtonTM platform from Life Technologies.

Services include genome-wide RNA expression analysis (RNA-seq), genomic chromatin immunoprecipitation using nextgen sequencing (ChIP-seq), and whole mammalian exome and small genome sequencing. We can also apply the technologies to specialized applications, such as mutation identification and targeted sequencing. Assistance with data analysis is also provided.
