The Genomics Core Facility occupies approximately 900 square feet of space on the fourth floor of the Center for Collaborative Research (CCR) building on the Davie campus of Nova Southeastern University. The core operates and maintains an Illumina NextSeq 500 Sequencing System, a NanoString nCounter MAX Prep Station, a Roche LightCycler 480 Instrument II, an Agilent 2100 Bioanalyzer and 4200 Tapestation, a Covaris E220 Focused-utrasonicator, a Qubit 3.0, a Thermo Scientific NanoDrop OneC , NanoDrop 3300, and NanoDrop 8000. The core also maintains a PCR suite open to NSU faculty, staff and students that contains three PCR workstation hoods, four Eppendorf Nexus Gradient PCR machines, a Thermo Scientific NanoDrop OneC, and full sets of single and multi-channel pipettes.
The Genomics Core Facility provides coordinated bioinformatics support services for data analysis of next-generation sequencing (NGS) projects using dedicated pipelines and consultation services to the NSU research community. Customized support outside of routine analysis is offered to promote collaboration. Please complete the NSU Bioinformatics Support Request Form to request data analysis services. Additionally, training will be developed to assist researchers in learning the bioinformatics tools used to analyze their NGS data.
