Genomics Core Facility offers customers a complete service for analyzing genetic material.
We carry out specific analyses from the initial planning of studies, including dimensioning and choice of design, through the laboratory processes to the final evaluation of the results.
Flexibility is a key feature at our facility. Our customers can use all or selected steps from the offered services. It is possible either to let us do the work or to run the samples on the equipment under our supervision.
[24 Apr 2013] Due to requests regarding qPCR courses, we at Genomics have decided to give a one-week course during this fall (October), if there are enough applicants. Click the link above to read more.
[3 Oct 2012] You can now apply for the course Data analysis in genomics given this spring by Genomics Core Facility.
[21 Aug 2012] A Forskningsingenjör/Bioinformatiker position for employment at Core facilities is out (Ref no. PER 2012/164). The position is as a bioinformatics data analyst within the Bioinformatics Infrastructure for Life Sciences (BILS) network.
Next Generation Sequencing - the new Illumina HiScanSQ and MiSeq instruments
With our two newly acquired instruments up and running, we are happy to announce that Next Generation Sequencing (NGS) and Microarray Analysis are now available in Gothenburg at Genomics Core Facility. The bioinformatics service associated with these analyses is now available as well.
Is the MiSeq something for you?
The Illumina small scale NGS sequencer, MiSeq, has a fast turnaround time (1 day/run) and fits applications such as targeted resequencing or small genome sequencing, amplicon sequencing and small RNA sequencing. If you are interested or have questions send an e-mail to genomics@.gu.se.
The revolutionary Infinium Methylation Assay from Illumina
The Infinium HumanMethylation BeadChip provides an efficient solution for surveying genome-wide DNA methylation profiles. Powered by Illumina's revolutionary Infinium Methylation Assay, this BeadChip allows researchers to interrogate more than 450 000 highly informative CpG sites per sample at single-nucleotide resolution.

Guidance and support in Bioinformatics
The Genomics staff can offer bioinformatics support and scientific guidance for your specific research project. We can process your sequencing data and deliver SNVs/indels lists that may explain the conditions you are testing, lists that are differentially expressed, list of sites where your protein interacts with the DNA, and more. We can perform several sequence based analysis (homology prediction, phylogeny, etc) as well as produce custom designed scripts to handle your unique data. Contact us to discuss your project so we can offer you a personalized support.
