The UCLA Genotyping and Sequencing Core
GenoSeq, the UCLA Genotyping and Sequencing Core, is a state-of-the-art laboratory facility equipped with the latest genomic technologies. The GenoSeq Core provides services to research groups on the UCLA campus and in the broader scientific community. The Core contributes to research throughout the world, including projects from Europe, Asia, Australia, South America, and a project analyzing samples from Antarctica. Approximately 4000 scientists from over 600 academic, government, and commercial labs have used the Core since 2000. The Core is part of the UCLA David Geffen School of Medicine, whose Medical Center has been rated one of the country’s top three hospitals, and number one on the west coast, for 18 consecutive years.
The GenoSeq Core is involved in a broad range of scientific research. Medical research performed at the GenoSeq Core includes studies of human neurological disorders, such as autism, bipolar disorder, and epilepsy; cancers of breast, colon, lung, and prostate; cardiac disease; and digestive disorders. The GenoSeq Core also carries out studies of the genetics of non-human organisms including wolves in Yellowstone Park, endangered California condors, giraffes, whales, crickets, and oak.

The GenoSeq Core is closely linked to the UCLA Bioinformatics Core in Gonda Center, which provides the computing power and sophisticated software needed to analyze and interpret the unprecedented volume of genetic data being generated with modern laboratory automation.
The GenoSeq Core has recently acquired a MiSeq Next-Generation Sequencing System
With this addition to our services, the GenoSeq Core now offers two Next-Generation Sequencing platforms: Long-read Next Gen Sequencing on the Roche GS FLX+, and short-read Next Gen Sequencing on the Illumina MiSeq
Contact us to find out more about running samples on the new MiSeq.
The GenoSeq Core provides services in the following areas:
- Sanger Sequencing
- Long-Read Next Generation/Genome Sequencing
- Short-Read Next Generation/Genome Sequencing
- Genotyping (SNP and microsatellite)
- DNA Methylation
- Copy Number Analysis
- siRNA and RNAi
