Genomics Core

The UofL Genomics Facility is located in the Clinical Translational Research Building Labs 227 F-H on the UofL Health Science Center Campus. The facility houses two Illumina Next Generation Sequencing platforms and a 10X Chromium single-cell-Seq instrument system.

The team provides support for project design, logistics and management, performs platform-specific sample processing and instrument protocols, as well as data collection, analysis and storage. Services offered include microarray-based global RNA or microRNA expression analyses, SNP profiling, NextGen genomic sequencing methods, RNA, microRNA, and metagenomics profiling, and targeted amplicon sequencing. As novel state-of-the-art technology, the Facility performs single-cell sequencing and cluster identifications on heterogeneous cell populations. The Facility also performs nucleic acid quality/quantity tests, assists in quantitative real-time PCR assays, and offers guidance in data analysis and mining.

The Facility continues to regularly organize and hold workshops on campus to train and update researchers in various genomic techniques and different data analysis applications.

The Facility also continues to manage the Campus-wide Life Technologies Supply Center. Reagent and supply items are ordered for a low flat rate shipping charge to be delivered to our Supply Center for individual investigators; popular items are stocked. The Facility Director Dr. Zacharias and Manager Sabine Waigel are members of the UofL Institutional Core Review Committee, with the mission to re-organize, define, and provide guidelines for classification and management of UofL Core Facilities.
