The HTSF is a full-service sequencing facility. We offer multiple platforms and several different state-of-the-art techniques to assist you with your genetic and genomic research. Below you can find a list of the platforms we use, the procedures and analyses we offer, and more information and links for sequencing support.
If you have any questions about the information below, please check out our FAQ page or contact the appropriate support staff. We appreciate your comments and feedback in order to improve our services and this webpage and very much look forward to helping you with your research.
The HTSF is supported by the School of Medicine and the Lineberger Cancer Center. The Facility has 2500 sq. ft. of dedicated wet bench lab space housed in a new 9000 sq ft. facility along with the UNC gene expression and Sanger sequencing cores. The HTSF has 8 Illumina HiSeq 2000 instruments and 2 Illumina Genome Analyzer II machines, an Ion Torrent Sequencer, and recently acquired a PacBio RS (SMRT) sequencing system, as well as associated equipment necessary for efficient operation.
All sequencers are associated with on board computers for real-time data processing, with three servers dedicated for data analysis and distribution. Five fulltime and 2 part time personnel staff the HTSF. Sequencing data processing, management, initial analysis, and distribution of all data generated at the HTSF are handled by the UNC Center for Bioinformatics, which has nine full-time employees, including three Ph.D. bioinformatics scientists who are responsible for application support, training and consultation for bioinformatics needs for researchers.
