The Genomics Unit offers medium- and large-scale sequencing and genotyping services, providing technical and methodological advising as both an internal service to researchers who temporarily access its facilities and as an external service to national and international public and private institutions


- Methylation and hydroxymethylation analysis

- Scientific-methodological advising on experiment design, choice, and optimization of genomic analysis techniques

- Nucleic acid extraction

- Quantification of nucleic acids (NANODROP 2000, Qubit)

- Amplification and electrophoresis

- Reverse transcription reaction

- Genotyping and genetic expression studies (qPCR, Pyrosequencer)

- Methylation and hydroxymethylation analysis

- Microbiota analysis (16S rRNA)

- Allele quantification (pyrosequencing)

- Duplicated qPCR

- Next-Generation Sequencing (NGS)

- NGS library construction

- ARRAYS (expression, SNPs)


All nodes have refrigerators for reagents and samples, freezers (-20ºC, -80ºC), flow hoods with extraction and UV, centrifuges, end-point thermocyclers, and a nucleic acid quantifier
