NUSeq (genomic services)


Launched September 1, 2015, the NUSeq Core is a shared resource facility that serves investigators at Northwestern University, affiliated institutions, and external academic and commercial institutions. We bring services previously provided by the Genomics Core Facility and Next Generation Sequencing Core together into one consolidated operation.

The facility provides a wide range of genomic/genetic technologies, including first- and next-generation sequencing, microarray, PCR, gene expression profiling, genotyping, methylomics, epigenomics, DNA-protein interaction, 3D genome and DNA accessibility, and metagenomics. Other genomic services include automated DNA extraction, DNA/RNA concentration measurement and quality control. On the bioinformatics front, the Core provides in-house data analysis and data mining services for genomics data generated in the core or externally. Our trained staff can assist with every step of your project, from design to analysis. Initial project consultation is provided free of charge.
