KU Genome Sequencing Core

The KU Genome Sequencing Core, located in Haworth Hall on the KU-Lawrence campus, is equipped with the Illumina family of Next-Gen Sequencers.

GSC Hours: Monday - Friday, 9:00am - 5:30pm

What We Do - GSC Project Workflow

The Genome Sequencing Core lab is part of the Center for Molecular Analysis of Disease Pathways, an NIH-funded Center for Biomedical Research Excellence infrastructural grant.

Next generation sequencing (NGS) is an enabling technology that is revolutionizing most aspects of biological and biomedical research, allowing whole genome analysis, transcriptomics, and epigenomics.

The Genome Sequencing Core can provide support and assistance for sequencing projects, including experimental design, library preparation, Illumina sequencing, and initial data processing (demultiplexing and FASTQ file generation).

Our Mission

1.  Provide seamless access to state-of-the-art next-generation sequencing capabilities to researchers and projects at the Center for Molecular Analysis of Disease Pathways, KU and the region, such that genomic techniques can be enabled and become part of the experimental repertoire in labs at KU and the region.

2.  Provide education, advice, lab training, and assistance to researchers in designing experiments involving NGS, as well as assistance in data handling and new method development.

3.  Serve as a catalyst for interaction and coordination with other genomics research resources at KU-Lawrence and the region to build a strong foundation for KU genomics research in the area.
