Research Services

Advice and guidance of sequencing projects are offered by our team, that relies on more than ten years of experience with sequencing systems and sequencing data analysis. All common sequencing applications (ChIP-seq, RNA-seq, Whole Genome Sequencing, etc.) are supported and the development of novel methods and protocols encouraged.

Depending on the required application, library preparation can either be performed by the users or by the facility. Multiplexed, barcoded samples can be used to fully exploit the sequencing capacity of the systems. We provide sample preparation protocols and offer contact to Illumina or reference customers on demand. To ensure optimal sequencing results we have introduced quality control steps at several points of the sequencing procedure.

Our Core Facility team set up a selection of bioinformatics tools in order to assist you in further data analysis.

Methods & Expertise for Research Infrastructure

- Sequencing the genome of a species
- Cataloging variation between individuals in a species
- Characterizing differences between cells within an individual
- Describing the underlying cellular mechanisms (mRNA expression levels, defining binding sites of DNA-binding molecules and many other)
