The KU Genome Sequencing Core,

located in Haworth Hall on the

KU-Lawrence campus,

is equipped with the

Illumina family of Next-Gen Sequencers.


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 mission of the Genome Sequencing Core includes the following:

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.

Please acknowledge the Core in your publications. Doing so will ensure that we can serve you better in future.

Kindly add the following statement to your Acknowledgments:

"Research reported in this [publication] was made possible in part by the services of the KU Genome Sequencing Core.  This lab is supported by the National Institute of General Medical Sciences (NIGMS) of the National Institutes of Health under award number P20GM103638."
