Established in 1996, the Molecular Genomics Core (MGC) is a state-of-the-art facility offering a variety of experimental platforms to facilitate genomics research. Accredited as a Duke Shared Resource facility in 2007, the MGC offers decades of experience with genetic, genomic and epigenomic study design and technology, working closely with researchers to customize experiments to meet their needs. The MGC highlights applications that include 10x Genomics NGS library generation for both single cell and gDNA experiments, DNA methylation microarrays, SNP genotyping and copy number microarrays, and Taqman targeted SNP genotyping.
