The Genomics Facility

The Genomics Facility offers expert support and advice on a range of genomic and transcriptomic applications to researchers here at Warwick and the external scientific community. We can assist you with grant submissions and costings as well as experimental design and troubleshooting.

Our lab offers in-house Illumina sequencing using the NextSeq500 and MiSeq platforms and access to 10X Chromium and Oxford Nanopore MinION technology.

We are happy to tailor methods to individual needs and are always keen to expand the technologies and protocols we can provide. We can help you with sample quality checks and work alongside the Warwick Bioinformatics RTP for help with data analysis.

Our lab is home to numerous pieces of communal equipment which we maintain and manage to provide consistent service and access to our users.

We also mange the provision of outsourced Sanger sequencing services and are happy to help with any questions you may have.
