The DNA Sequencing and Genotyping Facility of the Cornell University Life Sciences Core Laboratories Center (CLC) provides an array of shared research resources and services to the university community and to outside investigators. The facility offers a concentration of advanced instrumentation and expertise in their applications. Services include the ABI3730xl platform for Sanger sequencing of plasmid and PCR products.Resources for massively-parallel, “next generation” sequencing technology applications include the Roche 454 GS FLX and the Illumina Genome Analyzer IIx. The Sequenom MassArray is available for SNP genotyping and methylation studies.The ABI 7900HT is available for RT-PCR studies.The facility also provides support for SNP genotyping using automated sample processing pipelines for ABI SNPlex and Illumina array-based platforms, including both the Illumina BeadStation and BeadXpress readers.The goal of the facility is to provide rapid and accurate DNA sequencing and genotyping services.
