DNA Technologies & Expression Analysis Cores

The mission of the DNA Technologies Core at the UC Davis Genome Center is to provide DNA analytical services to campus and other researchers. We are currently focused on Next-Gen Sequencing (NGS) and genotyping, using mainly Illumina, PacBio, and Fluidigm platforms. Our goal is to enable access to high throughput genome-wide analyses at economical recharge rates, as a functional extension of your laboratory. The services offered by the Genome Center complement other UC Davis facilities in order to provide access to numerous technologies for genomic analysis.

The mission of the Expression Analysis Core at the UC Davis Genome Center is to provide services and technologies for gene expression analyses at the genomic level, without duplicating services readily available elsewhere on campus. We are currently focused on exploiting ultra high throughput sequencing and Illumina expression arrays. Workshops in these technologies are an important part of facility operations. We also offer access to microarray scanners, liquid handlers, and nucleic acid analyzers to facilitate your experiments.

Our neighbors from the Bioinformatics Core carry out sequence data analysis, statistical evaluations, consulting, and training to help you get the most out of your data. Please contact us for joint consultations with our Cores and the Bioinformatics Core and also for complete analysis packages including sequencing and bioinformatics (e.g. differential gene expression, variant calling).
