Genomic Technologies Core Facility

The Genomic Technologies Core Facility (GTCF) is housed in purpose-built laboratory space in the AV Hill 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:

  • Illumina next-generation sequencing
  • Digital nucleic acid analyses (NanoString nCounter Analysis System)
  • Single-cell research
  • Real-time and Droplet Digital PCR
  • Sanger sequencing

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.
