The core facility operates instruments for functional genomics and provides next-generation sequencing and single-cell transcriptomics services including consultations on project considerations and experimental design. The laboratory also performs primary bioinformatical analyses. The service is provided to the research groups at the Institute, to other academic institutions and also to commercial entities.

The core facility is equipped with an Illumina NextSeq 500 next-generation sequencer and Oxford Nanopore Minion Mk1b sequencer, two single-cell technologies (10x Genomics Chromium Controller and Bio-Rad ddSEQ), two real-time PCR cyclers (Roche LC480), droplet digital PCR system (Bio-Rad QX200), two legacy microarray platforms (Affymetrix GeneChip System and Illumina BeadStation 500) and an EnVision Plate Reader from PerkinElmer. The laboratory also operates instruments for assessment of the quality and quantity of processed samples (Nanodrop spectrophotometer, Qubit fluorometer, capillary electrophoreses Agilent Bioanalyzer 2100 and Agilent Fragment Analyzer 5200). Two ultrasonicators (Covaris ME 220 and Bioruptor) are available as shared equipment.

The core facility is an integral part of Laboratory of Genomics and Bioinformatics.
