Genomics & Bioinformatics Core Facility

The Genomics & Bioinformatics Core Facility

The Genomics & Bioinformatics Core Facility (GBCF) provides the Notre Dame research community with high-quality facilities and state-of-the-art technology to conduct genomic experiments and bioinformatics analysis.

The GBCF services are designed to provide genomics solutions to acquire data for a variety of applications including metagenomics, metagenetics, population genomics, transcriptomics, and epigenomics. Our user community spans basic biomedical research in human disease, pathogen genomics, non-model system genomics, and environmental genomics. 

Genomics services include high-throughput next-generation Illumina sequencing and library construction, AB3730xl Sanger sequencing and fragment analysis, Affymetrix Microarray Services, and a variety of RNA/DNA preparation and quantification techniques. Consultation is available to guide experimental design, and to provide assistance in identifying appropriate technology for specific research needs. The Bioinformatics team offers consultation, services for standard and custom genomic analysis, data management, development of bioinformatics tools, and access to biocomputing resources. We have the technology and expertise to meet a wide variety of research goals. 

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.
