Tools and Instrumentation Used

    The CGSR has a modern infrastructure that includes:

    • Illumina NextSeq 500 NGS
    • Illumina MiSeq NGS
    • Affymetrix GeneAtlas Microarray System
    • Agilent 2100 Bioanalyzer
    • Custom scripts for data processing (R coding)

    Typical Experiments and Expertise

    Next Generation Sequencing (NGS)

    • RNAseq – gene expression profiling, gene fusion analysis, allele specific expression, splice variant detection, microRNA (miRNA) detection, long non-coding RNA (lncRNA) detection
    • Exome Sequencing – identification and validation of genetic variants (mutations, SNPs, insertion-deletions (InDels)
    • Whole genome sequencing – mutation detection, tumor profiling, denovo genome sequencing
    • Methylation sequencing – whole genome bisulfite sequencing, methylation enrichment (methylation binding protein)
    • ChIPseq – transcription factor binding site identification


    • Expression profiling – mRNA/miRNA/lncRNA profiling, tumor profiling, time course assays
    • Copy number variation (CNV) detection – tumor profiling, genetic association
    • SNP analysis – genome-wide association analysis
    • ChIP-chip – transcription factor binding site identification


    • Data processing and quality control
    • Data normalization
    • Differential expression analysis
    • Mutational analysis
    • Clinico-genomic correlation analysis
    • Data visualization
    • Pathway enrichment analysis
