Genomics Core

The Genomics Core at the Center for Genetic Medicine is a shared resource facility that provides genomic services to investigators at the Robert H. Lurie Comprehensive Cancer Center, the Feinberg School of Medicine, Northwestern University and external users. Our goal is to facilitate the utilization of the state-of-the-art technologies in genomics research by Northwestern faculty and researchers nationwide at a competitive price and in a timely fashion.

The Genomics Core Facility offers a multitude of genomic services, including a range of traditional sequencing and fragment analysis options using our ABI 3730 high-throughput sequencer, sequencing with the Ion Torrent System, analysis for gene expression, methylation and SNP studies using Affymetrix technology and the Illumina iScan system, and validation of methylation and SNP analyses using the Sequenom MassARRAY4 system.

We strive to provide all of our customers with fast, accurate results. Our Tecan Freedom EVO system, which automates the setup of up all Illumina genotyping and methylation reactions, allows the Core to increase productivity. We can also measure the concentration of any sample using our Nanodrop system.
