Genomics & Bioinformatics Core Facility

The Genomics & Bioinformatics Core Facility

The Genomics & Bioinformatics Core Facility (GBCF) at the University of Notre Dame offers comprehensive services and support for state-of-the-art 'omics'​ experiments and bioinformatics analysis.

GBCF services are designed to provide genomics solutions and acquire data for a broad range of applications encompassing genomics (including metagenomics, cancer genomics, microbial genomics, and non-model system genomics), transcriptomics, and epigenomics research. The facility offers support for a diverse research community that spans basic biomedical research in human disease, vector disease research (arthropod vectors and parasites), population genomics, and environmental genomics. Genomics services include next-generation Illumina sequencing, AB3730xl Sanger sequencing and fragment analysis, and a variety of RNA/DNA library construction and QC techniques. The Bioinformatics team offers services for standard and custom genomic analysis, data management, development of bioinformatics tools, and access to biocomputing resources. Consultation is available to guide experimental design, and to provide assistance in identifying appropriate technology for specific research needs. 

The GBCF also provides opportunities for education and training at all levels from undergraduate to faculty through workshops, seminars, and individual training. The GBCF is available to researchers from the ND community, other academic institutions, and industry. We are an approved Indiana CTSI core facility making our services available to all CTSI partners at cost effective rates.
