Welcome to the Nova Southeastern University Genomics Core Facility (NSU GCF). Our goal is to provide NSU investigators, as well as external investigators, access to sophisticated methodologies in genomics including, but not limited to, Illumina next-generation sequencing (NGS) and multiplexed digital profiling of single target molecules using NanoString's nCounter technology. We ensure high quality data using highly stringent quality control (QC) metrics.
The critical objectives of the NSU GCF are:

2018 Illumina RNA-Seq Pilot Grant Program
NSU’s Translational Research and Economic Development Genomics Core Facility is soliciting applications for pilot projects utilizing the Illumina NextSeq 500 platform for RNA-Seq applications. The primary goal of this pilot grant program is to offer NSU faculty and graduate students (with PI support) a unique opportunity for gene expression research projects at minimal cost as a way to catalyze further next-generation sequencing (NGS) studies. The proposed research must have relevance to basic, translational, and/or clinical science. This opportunity is made available through a generous donation of sample preparation kits and sequencing consumables from Illumina, Inc. The Genomics Core Facility will provide the labor requested for the sample preparation and sequencing free of charge. Please refer to the 2018 Illumina RNA-Seq Pilot Grant Program for full details.
Submission Terms and Conditions
Join us for a one-hour seminar to learn how Illumina RNA sequencing (RNA-Seq) can help you uncover the answers to drive your research forward. A simple end-to-end sequencing workflow lets you go from sample to results—faster and easier than ever before. During this seminar, Illumina Sequencing Specialist, Matt Angel, will present an overview of next-generation sequencing technology and discuss the basic concepts and key advantages of RNA-Seq. From measuring gene and transcript abundance to uncovering novel features in the coding transcriptome, the possibilities are limitless. See what NGS can do for your research!
