Identifying genomic variants, such as single nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs) and DNA insertions and deletions (indels), can play an important role in scientific discovery. To this end, a pipeline has been developed to allow researchers at the CGSB to rapidly identify and annotate variants. The pipeline employs the Genome Analysis Toolkit (GATK) to perform variant calling… [read more]
A new year means new sequencing projects, but how do you know which sequencer is right for your project? There are many factors that go into choosing which sequencing platform and machine will fit your specific project. Factors that must be considered are time, cost, and depth. Making the wrong decision can lead to more time and more… [read more]
The Genomics Core Facility (Gencore) is a state of the art genomics facility enabling high throughput genome sequencing, proteomics and quantitative analyses.
Gencore is located in the Center for Genomics and Systems Biology in the Biology Department at NYU-NY and the Center for Genomics and Systems Biology in NYU-AD.
