The University of North Texas BioDiscovery Institute Genomics Center Core Facility is a 1700 square foot lab located in Life Sciences Complex A417 on the Denton campus. The Center provides experimental design and consultation support, sample quantity and quality analysis services, NextGen sequencing, microarray and qPCR services and support, and assists with data output bioinformatics and biostatistics analysis support. Our main core platforms consist of an Illumina NextSeq 500 sequencing system, an Illumina MiSeq Desktop sequencing system, a Covaris M220 Focused Ultrasonicator, an Affymetrix GeneArray Scanner/GeneChip workstation, and a ThermoFisher QuantStudio 5 Real-Time PCR System. Sequencing library quantity and quality are assessed with an Agilent 2100 Bioanalyzer, a Qubit 3.0 Fluorometer, and a NanoDrop One Spectrophotometer. We employ numerous library preparation methods to support a multitude of sequencing needs as well as whole genome, transcriptome (RNA-Seq), exome, and targeted region of interest sequencing. 

 

DATA FILES

Upon completion of your sequencing run, the Genomics Center will demultiplex the run by sample and convert the files from BCl to Fastq format. The sequencing files will then be uploaded to a secure cloud storage site and will be accessible for download. If requested, we can also tranfer sequencing files to an external storage device directly.

 

SERVICE RATES
