  • The Genomic Analysis unit offers its services to NIBN and Ben-Gurion University researchers, as well as others in academia and industry. These services range from total DNA/RNA extraction to sequencing (using either Sanger DNA sequencing or next-generation sequencing) and genotyping. The unit also performs Illumina sequencing library preparations, including quality control checks. Other services include Digital PCR quantification, high-throughput gene expression (by using Affymetrix microarrays), and single-cell isolation.

    The unit provides assistance with experimental design, troubleshooting, and basic data analysis.

    Equipment:

    • Applied Biosystems 3500xL Genetic Analyzer
    • Illumina MiSeq
    • Agilent 2100 Bioanalyzer
    • Thermo Scientific NanoDrop One Spectrophotometer
    • Invitogen Qubit 2.0 Fluorometer
    • Affymetrix G7 Genechip Scanner, Genechip Fluidic 450 Station and Hybridization Oven
