We are a constantly evolving genomics core facility. You can find out about our recent developments in services, bioinformatics, IT and management in our Autumn Newsletter
Our Timeline. Founded in 2000 the Genome Centre at Barts and The London
School of Medicine and Dentistry has successfully provided genetic
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 goal is to professionally partner all stages of your genetic or
projects, including project proposal, experimental design,
training, technical support, analysis and interpretation
