The Sequencing and Genomic Technologies Shared Resource, a basic research oriented core facility and is affiliated to the Duke Cancer Institute (DCI). This Shared Resource was created by the recent merger of two existing Duke Center for Genomic and Computational Biology units, the Microarray Core Shared Resource and the Genome Sequencing Shared Resource. Each of these predecessor cores has a track record more than a decade long of providing constantly updated, state-of-the-art genomic services. The new Sequencing and Genomic Technologies Shared Resource offers the full range of genomic technologies, making it much simpler for researchers to find the right service for their needs. Administratively, the merger provides comprehensive consultation, seamless management of complex projects that span multiple services, enhanced operational flexibility, and economies of scale for support services. Genomic technologies are among the most important experimental tools in modern research. Their importance will unquestionably grow in the coming years as declining prices allow for ever-larger projects, powerful new instrumentation provides increasingly precise data, and entirely novel applications appear. Genomic tools that are provided include the following:
