The Genomics Shared Resource serves as a hub for consultation and scientific interaction relating to nucleic acid-based methods. It provides expertise and support to ensure the best possible outcomes for genomics-related projects. The Facility supports several state-of-the-art platforms for a wide variety of nucleic acid-based studies, including massively parallel sequencing as well as routine capillary sequencing. The Facility also supports projects related to RNA sequencing, ChIP-seq, whole genome and targeted resequencing, methylation (MeDIP), single cell sequencing and gene expression studies using Quant-seq or the NanoString platform. In addition, we support SNP genotyping analysis using TaqMan assays and we also offer digital PCR, microsatellite assays and C.bovis detection. Consultation is provided to assist with experimental design and for the development of custom services.
This facility is supported in part by an NCI Cancer Center Support Grant and equipment grants from the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania, The Pew Charitable Trusts and the National Cancer Institute.
