Genome Sequencing Facility

Mission Statement

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 Regents Institutions and member institutions of Frontiers: The Heartland Institute for Clinical and Translational Research.

About the Genome Sequencing Facility

The Kansas University Medical Center has established the Genome Sequencing Facility featuring the Illumina HiSeq 2500 Sequencing System. Utilizing the HiSeq 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 KUMC Bioinformatics Core, allowing for coordination of sequence data analysis between the Investigator and Bioinformatic Specialists.
