The Genomics & Bioinformatics Core Facility (GBCF) at the University of Notre Dame offers comprehensive services and support for state-of-the-art \’omics\’? experiments and bioinformatics analysis.
GBCF services are designed to provide genomics solutions and acquire data for a broad range of applications encompassing genomics (including metagenomics, microbial genomics, and non-model system genomics), transcriptomics, and epigenomics research. The facility offers a high level of support for a diverse research community that spans basic biomedical research in human disease, vector disease research (arthropod vectors and parasites), population genomics, environmental genomics, and more. 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, 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 ‘omics’ analysis, data management, development of bioinformatics tools, and access to biocomputing resources. Consultation is encouraged to guide experimental design, and to provide assistance in identifying appropriate technology for specific research needs.
