Genomics Core

The Genomics Core is focused on gathering genome, transcriptome, epigenome and metagenome information for investigators. Our mission is to make these complex technologies accessible and biologically interpretable for clinical and basic research scientists.

The Genomics Core enables investigators with little experience in sample preparation, quality control or analysis to interrogate the genome. To facilitate this, we have developed general but complete wet-lab and bioinformatics analysis pipelines to accommodate standard needs and enable most genomewide investigations. For more sophisticated or custom designs, we work actively in collaboration with other Cedars-Sinai cores and resources to facilitate investigations.

The Genomics Core now offers new applications, such as single-cell RNA sequencing, microbiome profiling and targeted transcriptome resequencing for FFPE samples, using a brand-new Illumina Novaseq, MiSeq and NextSeq. The combination of instruments enables us to uniquely identify the best solutions for each project depending on sample size, sample quality, price and turnaround time.


Genomics Core Open House

We are pleased to invite you to join the Genomics Core staff and industry leaders to learn about the latest genomics technologies and services available on campus.

In brief, there will be several talks focusing on the recent advances in the applications (please see attached flyer for more details):

  • Single-cell copy number profiling, for revealing genome heterogeneity and clonal evolution
  • Single cell multi-omics: profiling single cell transcriptomes and epitopes by sequencing
  • Genomics applications with our new powerful NovaSeq 6000 sequencer
  • A new epigenomics assay: omni-ATAC-Seq for chromatin accessibility profiling
  • Updates on services, pricing and our team in the Genomics Core  

Start date: June 7, 2018, 10:30 a.m.

End date: June 7, 2018, 1:45 p.m.

Location: Advanced Health Sciences Pavilion, PEC 6-7

Lunch will be provided.

We believe this will be a good educational opportunity for faculty and trainees in the field of biomedical sciences.

RSVP to, as space could be limited.
