The Genomics & Bioinformatics Core Facility (GBCF) at the University of Notre Dame offers comprehensive services and support for state-of-the-art genomics experiments and bioinformatics analysis.
GBCF services are designed to provide genomics solutions and acquire data for a broad range of applications including metagenomics, cancer genomics, microbial genomics, non-model system genomics, transcriptomics, and epigenomics. The GBCF offers support for a diverse research community that spans basic biomedical research in human disease, vector disease research (arthropod vectors and parasites), population genomics, and environmental genomics. Custom and speciality workflows are welcome. Genomics services include next-generation Illumina sequencing, Sanger sequencing and fragment analysis, and a variety of RNA/DNA library construction methods and QC techniques. Specialized equipment includes an Illumina MiSeq and Illumina NextSeq 500 sequencer, 10X Chromium Controller, Applied Biosystems 3730xl 96-capillary sequencer, Agilent 2100 Bioanalyzer, Affymetrix GeneChip System, Qubit 2.0 Fluorometer, Covaris S220 high-intensity acoustic shearing equipment, and Sage Science BluePippin.
Our computing facilities are equipped with high performance hardware and computational resources. The Bioinformatics team offers services for standard and custom genomics analysis, data management, bioinformatics tool development, and access to biocomputing resources. Consultation is encouraged to guide experimental design, and to provide assistance in identifying appropriate technology for specific research needs.
