Genomics Core

Equipment/facility: Facility

Description

The Genomics Cores provides small scale to genome size high throughput DNA sequencing. The core also provides infrastructure for SNP profiling, fragment analysis genotyping, Quantitative Real Time PCR, and a number of microarray platforms for gene expression, a CGH, and methylation analysis. The MSU facility can produce nearly 50 GB of data each day - more than 15 times the data in a single human genome. Researchers attach DNA to glass slides and use one of the two Illumina sequencers to amplify to 10,000 times before running a sequence reaction and assembling the sequence.
