Genomic technologies facility
The Genomic Technologies Core Facility (GTCF) is housed in purpose-built laboratory space in the Michael Smith Building. Funded largely from grants from the Wellcome Trust, the Facility was established to provide access to cutting-edge post-genomic technologies.
The facility supports five main technology categories:
- Digital nucleic acid analyses (NanoString nCounter Analysis System)
- Next-generation sequencing
- Affymetrix GeneChip Microarrays
- Real-time PCR instruments
- RNAi library screening
Also, we have extensive liquid handling and automation capacity, together with instrumentation for quantification and sample QC. The facility operates in close association with the bioinformatics core facility to facilitate a complete service from experimental design through to bioinformatic analyses.
