The Genomics Core Facility at QBRI actively supports scientific research by providing advanced research technologies and services to the research community at HBKU and QBRI, and their collaborators from academia and industries to address the complex biomedical problems of QBRI’s research interests in the field of cancer biology, metabolic disorders and neurological diseases.
The Genomics Core and Genome Technology laboratory is equipped with various state-of-the-art, high-throughput technological platforms to sequence the nucleic acids by next-generation sequencing (NGS) as well by capillary sequencing methods; as well as capillary sequencing methods and different array platforms. Our applications include sequencing of different nucleic acid templates, high throughput genotyping, epigenome analysis, gene expression analysis, single-cell technologies, NanoString technologies and digital PCR methods.
The Genomics Core and Genome Technology laboratory operation is aligned to support the vision and mission of QBRI-based fundamentals; assisting the researchers with design of an experiment, providing intellectual support and novel method development for genomics experiments; interface with other core technological platforms to facilitate integrated biology research; and collaborative research.
The facilities and instruments that are available at QBRI’s Genomics Core Facility are classified broadly under the following categories
