MOLECULAR GENOMICS CORE



Established in 1996, the Molecular Genomics Core Lab (MGC) is a state-of-the-art facility that offers a variety of experimental platforms to facilitate genomics research. Our services cover human genetic research, as well as model organisms including, but not limited to, mouse, rat, cow, and zebrafish.

Due to the unique nature of each project, our services are customized to meet each researcher's needs. MGC faculty and staff are available to assist in study design to identify the optimal molecular platform needed to realize research goals.

We offer the following services:

Accurate sample handling is commensurate with the generation of premium quality molecular data. Accordingly, the MGC uses liquid handling robots for automated sample handling and formal QC processes to ensure delivery of data that meets MGC criteria and clients' requirements. MGC standards and customer sample replicates are added to each genotyping experiment. As a project progresses, standard and replicate samples will be checked for concordance.

Useful examples from the field:

   1. A hybrid approach for de novo human genome sequence assembly and phasing.
   2. Massively parallel digital transcriptional profiling of single cells.
