The aim of the Genomics Unit is to provide technological services in the fields of genomics and genetics. Technologies with the capacity to interrogate genomes and their activities in a single assay are available. Methodologies able to dissect active molecular hierarchies and pathways (transcriptomic RNA profiling) or structural variations (mutation landscapes, chromatin structure) for the study of cancer or other biological processes. Our services cover a broad range of applications. Next-generation sequencing (NGS) is a staple among them. It is being used for chromatin structure studies, chromosomal protein location analysis, and for transcriptome determinations even at the single-cell level. More traditional methodologies like Sanger capillary DNA sequencing are also provided. As a side activity, the Unit supports a genetically engineered mouse genotyping service.
