The University of North Dakota Genomics Core has provided laboratory services and
bioinformatics analysis since 2014.
Its creation aimed to offer technical laboratory support to investigators in the form
of nucleic acid extraction, quality control testing, library preparation, and next-generation
sequencing services for various types of samples, from tissues to isolated RNA/DNA.
The Genomics Core specializes in library preparation for a wide range of applications,
such as RNA-Seq, single-cell 10x, whole-genome sequencing, and microbiome analysis.
Additionally, the Core employs sequencing platforms from Illumina for short reads,
Nanopore for long reads, and NanoString for spatial transcriptomics.
The Core also offers bioinformatics analysis services for many Next-generation sequencing
projects such as RNA-seq, CHIP-seq, CUT&RUN, ATAC-seq, PRO-seq, CoPRO, DNA methylation,
and Nanopore and single-cell data.
Notably, the Core is developing a novice-oriented platform called genomEX, which,
among many things, offers a cloud service where one-click pipelines for standard analysis
can be run in fully personalized and dedicated high-performance computing environments.
Lastly, the Core provides educational sessions to help investigators effectively utilize
its various resources.
