Facility

The NSU GCF occupies approximately 900 sq. ft. of space on the 4th floor of the Center for Collaborative Research (CCR) Building on the Davie Campus of Nova Southeastern University.  The space houses an Illumina NextSeq™ 500 Sequencing System, a Roche LightCycler® 480 Instrument II, an Agilent 4200 Tapestation, a Covaris E220 Focused-utrasonicator, a Thermo Scientific NanoDrop OneC.  The facility also encompasses a PCR Suite open to NSU researchers that contains three PCR workstations, a bank of Eppendorf Nexus Gradient PCR machines, an Agilent 4200 Tapestation, an Agilent AriaMx Realtime PCR System, a Thermo Scientific NanoDrop OneC Spectrophotometer, a Thermo Scientific NanoDrop 3300 Fluorospectrometer, and a Thermo Scientific NanoDrop 8000 Spectrophotometer.

The Genomics Core maintains and operates the following platform:

  • Illumina NextSeq™ 500 Sequencing System

We also provide the following equipment:

  • Roche LightCycler® 480 Instrument II
  • Agilent 4200 Tapestation
  • Covaris ME220 Focused-ultrasonicator™
  • Thermo Scientific™ NanoDrop™ OneC, NanoDrop™ 3300, and NanoDrop™ 8000
  • Agilent AriaMx RealTime PCR System

Bioinformatics:

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 contact the core facility to request a consultation and quote for customized projects. Additionally, training will be developed to assist researchers in learning the bioinformatics tools used to analyze their NGS data.
