Genomic Diversity Facility

 

  • DNA and RNA extraction services are available for both plants and animals.   Click here for more information.
  • State-of-the-art services for quantifying nucleic acids (DNA and RNA) using fluorescent intercalating dyes, evaluation of fragment sizes by capillary or field inversion gel electrophoresis, sample cleanup using column-based purification protocols, sample concentration/dilution, and sample re-array.

     

  •  

    Library construction services are available for sequencing small and large genomes (WGS), 3’RNA seq (a cost-effective alternative to RNA seq) and custom genotyping applications. Click here for more information.

     

  •  

    Professional molecular biology lab services are available for evaluating proof-of-concept or collecting preliminary data for new genotyping protocols or other nucleic acid-based applications.  Please inquire (sem30@cornell.edu).

     

  •  

    The Genomic Diversity Facility, either independently or in collaboration with the Bioinformatics Facility, offers full service bioinformatics for standard or custom genotyping applications including reference genome assembly, SNP calling, data imputation, 3’RNA seq data analysis and genetic mapping. Please inquire (jcg233@cornell.edu).

     

  •  

    Consultation on project design, protocol testing and development and data analysis is available upon request (sem30@cornell.edu). 

     

  •  

    The Genomic Diversity Facility offers training for user-accessible instruments (GenoGrinder and lyophilizers), sample preparation and data analysis pipelines/software.  Data analysis workshops are also presented in collaboration with the Bioinformatics Facility and/or other Cornell affiliates.
