The GSR provides services in the following areas:
Next-generation sequencing technology is one of the most powerful genomics technologies to emerge in recent years is accelerating the pace of advances in basic and translational research. The GSR will help you with your samples at any point during the process, whether you have already prepared sequencing libraries or if you just have the plan for a project that you’d like to get started. We also have robust data analysis pipelines in place and will work closely with you to get the most out of your experiments.
The GSR has extensive experience with the isolation of DNA and RNA from various sources (whole blood, buffy coat, plasma, frozen and FFPE tissue, virus, cell lines, and others). We also have all the equipment necessary to perform spectrophotometric and fluorometric quantification as well as quality assessment of nucleic acids. The GSR’s nucleic acids services are an excellent option for any researcher, whether you lack the equipment, laboratory space, or personnel to work with nucleic acids, or if you are simply looking for the experience and expertise that will yield robust and consistent results in your downstream applications.
Consultation is provided at an hourly rate for assistance with experimental design, troubleshooting, data analysis, results interpretation, and manuscript/grant proposal preparation.
The data processing and analysis capabilities of the GSR are supported by an infrastructure of servers and computational workstations, as well as licenses for several commercial bioinformatic software packages.
