About Us

The NUSeq Core is a shared resource facility that serves investigators at Northwestern University, affiliated institutions, and external academic and commercial organizations. We bring services previously provided by the Genomics Core Facility and Next Generation Sequencing Core together into one consolidated operation. The facility provides a wide range of sequencing, genotyping, and gene expression profiling options to meet your needs, in addition to other genomic services such as DNA extraction, and RNA quality control. In addition, the Core provides in-house bioinformatics analysis. Our trained staff can assist with every step of your project, from design to analysis. 

Core Mission 

NUSeq Core is committed to providing next-generation sequencing and other state-of-the-art genomics technologies, with integrated bioinformatics support, to Northwestern life science and biomedical research.

NUSeq accomplishes this mission through:

Providing cost-effective, full in-house services to NU researchers, from experimental design, sample preparation, to data generation and analysis

Developing new genomics methods, while providing customization/optimization to meet specific individual needs

Fostering interaction and collaboration among investigators and research units on genomics research endeavors.
