The Centre for Health Genomics and Informatics is a full-service core facility which can perform all of the steps required to convert DNA or RNA samples into next-gen sequencing data. This includes nucleic acids quality assessment, shearing, size selection, library preparation, size analysis, qPCR quantitation, pooling/normalization, sequencing, and generation of lists of variants or expressed genes. Researchers need only extract the DNA or RNA from their samples and our facility will do the rest. We only accept purified DNA or RNA samples. No cells, tissues, blood or other biological materials can be processed. We also provide sample validation, shearing, size selection, and library preparation services for researchers who want to do the sequencing on their own instruments.
