The GECF (Gene Expression Core Facility) provides a diverse set of tools for the functional and quantitative analysis of genomes and transcriptomes. We offer access to next-generation sequencing both on single cells or bulk cell populations, as well as to classical or high-throughput microfluidics-based qPCR technologies. In addition, we provide advanced in-house bioinformatics and biostatistics analyses. Finally, we enable manipulation of the cellular gene expression program by providing different genome-wide collections of ORFs.
Because new technologies constantly emerge, we are eager to discuss means to further improve and develop our toolbox.
- Our new HiSeq 4000 sequencer just arrived! Service will begin later in January.
- We released libraries submission guidelines for NextSeq sequencing. They are available here.
- We released RNA submission guidelines for RNA-seq, and gDNA submission guidelines for whole genome sequencing or exome sequencing. They are available here.
- A slightly updated version of our price list is available here.
- Our new 10X Genomics Chromium instrument is operational. This allows scaling up single cells transcriptomics experiments to thousands of cells.
