The Genomic Facility (GF) is a core service facility providing state-of-the-art services in high-throughput genomic technologies to researchers, academic community and private organisations. It was established in 2002 as the outcome of the continuous effort and growing expertise of IMBB in the post genomics field. Today, the facility is powered by state-of-the-art technologies that include the Next Generation DNA Sequencing platforms Illumina Next-seq, Ion Torrent Proton and Ion Torrent PGM and the Affymetrix Microarray platform as well as additional instrumentation for quality control of the samples and the processes.
MGF is operated by highly experienced staff in genomic and transcriptomic analysis and the core services include experimental design, sample manipulation, instrumentation, data analysis, interpretation and validation. Advanced bioinformatics analysis is also available in collaboration with the recently constituted Bioinformatics group.
