Thanksgiving Holiday: The Sequencing and Genomic Technologies Core Facility will be closed Thursday, November 26 and Friday, November 27 for Thanksgiving. Samples may still be dropped off at the lab in the Chesterfield on Monday and Tuesday afternoon (November 23 - 24). The campus location for drop off will not be available the week of November 23.
COVID-19: The COVID-19 pandemic is generating various supply chain issues for lab consumables, such as tips, 96-well plates and more recently, Illumina sequencing reagents (NovaSeq S-Prime flow cells, in particular). As a consequence, the turnaround time for some of our sequencing services may be impacted. We are doing our best to secure necessary supplies, and we thank you for your patience during these difficult times.
Reminder, the lab is located at
Duke Center for Genomic and Computational Biology
701 W. Main Street
Durham NC 27701
Next-Generation Sequencing Solutions
Illumina, PacBio, NGS Library preparation including single-cell RNA-seq
The Sequencing and Genomic Technologies Shared Resource is a basic research oriented core facility affiliated with the Duke Cancer Institute (DCI). This Shared Resource has a track record more than a decade-long of providing constantly updated, state-of-the-art genomic services. The 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.
Director Nicolas Devos is available for face-to-face project consultations on campus in the CIEMAS building or at our new facility.
For all publications that include data generated in the Sequencing and Genomic Technologies Shared Resource, we kindly request that you acknowledge this support:
We thank the Duke University School of Medicine for the use of the Sequencing and Genomic Technologies Shared Resource, which provided _________ service.
