The GCTU is a not-for-profit service provider for the research community and is equipped with state-of-the-art next generation sequencing platforms. Coupled with complementary robotics, sequence capture and array capabilities, we offer optimum, tailor-made solutions across a wide range of biological applications.
Advances in genomics technologies in a period of radical transformation drive the field of Life Sciences. Fundamental to this genomic revolution has been the advent of Next-Generation Sequencing (NGS), which enables analysis of hundreds of millions of DNA sequences in a single experiment. Coupled with significant advances in informatics, this has underpinned a myriad of diverse applications that have already delivered rapid advances and significant impact in all fields of Life Sciences. As a result, such technologies are now a routine facet of internationally competitive research and integral to successful grant applications and high impact publications. The recent significant investment in cutting edge genomics and computational infrastructure and the aligned development of the FMHLS genomics core technology unit (GCTU) presents the opportunity for the University to become a leader in genomics.
