Core facility (CF)

Short Description

The core facility Genomics comprises a combination of instruments for global gene expression, genome and methylome analysis as well as for the analysis of (oncogenic) signal transduction pathways (Illumina NextSeq 550; Affymetrix Gene Atlas Station; PyroMark Q24 Workstation; RotorQ qPCR cylcers)

Methods & Expertise for Research Infrastructure

The core facility Genomics serves nationale and internationale collaboration projects for the molecular, genetic, epigenetic and cell biological/biochemical and evolutionary biological analyses of biological samples, such as cancer tissues and immune cells, as well as of plant organisams.
Main applications are global gene expression studies, small and large scale analysis of epigenetic modifications such as DNA methylation in cancer cells, as well as DNA sequence analyses in the context of evolutionary biology and plant science projects.
