The Kansas University Medical Center - Genome Sequencing Facility (GSF) was established by the Kansas University School of Medicine and operates in partnership with the Kansas Intellectual and Developmental Disabilities Research Center (KIDDRC) NIH U54 HD090216 and the Kansas University Medical Center - Microarray Facility ( KUMC-MF ) . The mission of the Genome Sequencing Facility is to provide centralized access to Next Generation sequencing technology for the advancement of research conducted by Investigators of KUMC, Kansas Regent Institutions and member institutions of Frontiers: The Heartland Institute for Clinical and Translational Research.
The Kansas University Medical Center - Genome Sequencing Facility has been providing NGS services since 2010. The facility currently operates the Illumina NovaSeq 6000 and HiSeq 2500 Sequencing Systems. Leveraging the the advanced capabilities of the NovaSeq System, Investigators can accelerate their research by performing large scale sequencing studies on complex genomes, transcriptomes and epigenomes. The Genome Sequencing Facility operates in conjunction with the KUMC Bioinformatics Core allowing for coordination of sequence data analysis support between the Investigator and Bioinformatic Specialists. Investigator support for library validation and nucleic acid isolation and quality control is also available through the Microarray Facility.
