Genomics Core Facility

The Genomics Core Facility in IMTM provides services using two different next-generation sequencing platforms from Illumina. Applications supported include:

  • Amplicon sequencing for metagenomic studies
  • Targeted sequencing of formalin fixed paraffin embedded (FFPE) samples
  • Transcriptome sequencing of humans
  • Whole genome sequencing of non-model organisms


Analysis from high throughput technologies is provided in cooperation with IT core facility. In addition, the Facility continues to offer a variety of traditional genetic services, including:

  • Comparative genomic hybridization (CGH)
  • Constructing of DNA FISH probes for designated genes/chromosomal areas
  • Fluorescent in situ hybridisation (FISH)
  • Fragment analysis
  • Genotyping, SNPs
  • High Resolution Melting Analysis (HRM)
  • Karyotyping
  • Microarray analysis
  • Reverse transcription Real-Time quantitative PCR
  • Real-Time quantitative PCR
  • Sanger sequencing
