Bookings and service requests


The mission of the Genomics Facility is to carry out and support internationally outstanding research on Next Generation Sequencing (NGS), microarrays, and services such as nucleic acid sample extraction, quantification, RT-qPCR and Quality Control (QC). We support – in close consultation with users – all aspects of these applications, ranging from experimental design and sample preparation to advanced data analysis.

The Genomics Facility provides wet lab expertise, completed by bioinformatics know-how, allowing for coordination of competences and providing complete and reliable results to investigators.

We welcome investigators to contact us as upstream as possible to determine the optimal strategy for their project.
