The Genomics Technologies Shared Resource, consisting of the Microarray and Molecular Cytogenetics facilities, provides access to specialized instrumentation and technical expertise in high-throughput genomic technologies and molecular cytogenetics for use in individual and collaborative research programs.
Together the Microarray and Cytogenetics facilities and services provide an integrated platform for basic and translational genomics research in cancer biology.
The Next-Generation Sequencing Facility provides high-quality and cost-effective next-generation gene sequencing services for researchers in the Columbia University community, as well as investigators at other universities and in the biotechnology and pharmaceutical industries.
We perform whole genome sequencing, whole exome sequencing, and RNA-seq, using a variety of successful and widely adopted tools. We are an Illumina CSPro Certified Service Provider. In addition, we maintain other genomic technologies including the Nanostring nCounter and the Fluidigm Biomark HD System.
We welcome next-generation sequencing projects of all sizes, including both large and small runs. We also encourage pilot projects: You can test an experiment and our facilities by sequencing just a small number of samples for the same price per sample as a more extensive experiment. This flexibility is often particularly useful for researchers who are new to the technology.
As an integral part of the Columbia Initiative in Systems Biology and the Columbia Genome Center, our staff also includes faculty with expertise in bioinformatics and advanced data analysis. In some cases, we may be able to facilitate opportunities for research collaborations that use the tools offered by computational biology.
