The Molecular Genomics Core Facility performs high throughput analyses of genetic (polymorphism/mutation) and epigenetic variations (DNA methylation) that underlie predisposition and progression to cancer. The Core uses the latest technology to evaluate primarily genetic variations for association studies using single nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs).
David Van Den Berg, Core Director
Software is provided for analysis of genomic data, including: statistical analysis of high-throughput data and DNA/protein sequence analysis; comprehensive functional analysis and advanced literature and data search and mining.

The UPC Genome and Cytometry Core provides high-throughput next-generation sequencing on the Illumina HiSeq 2500 and the Ion Torrent PGM platforms. The HiSeq 2500 system can be used in Rapid Run mode (equivalent to MySeq) or High-output mode. The Core also provides optional library construction services and use of our high-throughput Beckman Coulter Biomek® 3000 Automated Workstation. Services also include access to the versatile BD Influx Flow Cytometer & Cell Sorter to facilitate a wide array of research applications.
