ninglin yinThe Genomics laboratory is a core facility of the Center for Integrated BioSystems at Utah State University. The genomics core is a shared resource that provides genomics services to investigators on campus and external users. The facility offers state-of-the-art resources and services, including Next Generation Sequencing using our Illumina MiSeq, Ion Torrent Proton, and Ion Torrent PGM systems. In addition, a range of traditional DNA sequencing and fragment analysis options are available using our ABI PRISM™ 3730 DNA Analyzer. The Genomics Core also offers analysis services using Affymetrix Microarray Technology for gene expression profiling. Other services include RNA and DNA analysis (Agilent TapeStation), quantification (NanoDrop and Qubit), and size selection (Sage Science Blue Pippin 50-50,000 bp). We strive to provide all of our customers with fast, accurate results. For inquiries please contact Ning Lin Yin.
