About Us

Monika at NGS

We are a constantly evolving genomics core facility. With our experienced team of scientists our goal is to partner all stages of your genetic or genomic research projects, including project proposal, experimental design, training, technical support, analysis and interpretation of data

Our Timeline. Founded in 2000 the Genome Centre at Barts and The London School of Medicine and Dentistry has successfully provided genetic and genomic research facilities to researchers within Queen Mary University and the wider Life Sciences research community for over 10 years

Initial investment in 2000 provided robotics, capillary sequencing and real-time PCR capability which we still support. Further investment in 2006 in microarray from Illumina (updated in 2011 to the iScan) enabled us to support high density SNP, Gene Expression and Methylation analysis. 2008 and 2009 saw adoption of Illumina's next generation sequencing technology and the associated IT infrastructure. 2012 has seen us rolling out library preps using the Fluidigm and targeted sequencing on the MiSeq. With this portfolio of platforms the centre can facilitate studies of the genome, transcriptome and epigenome on any scale.  

Our Services

Fluidigm C1

Full details of technologies and services can be found on our service menu, alternatively you can contact us directly for a project discussion.

NEW Services. We are excited to be able to offer single cell genomics using our latest piece of equipment the Fluidigm C1.
Currently the technology is used to enable single cell transcriptomics 1,2. In the near future it will support genomic and epigenomic applications 3
