Genomics Core (Jupiter)

The Scripps Florida Genomics Core was established to enable access by Scripps Florida investigators to the latest technologies for Next Generation Sequencing (NGS) and microarray analysis.

The Genomics Core maintains and operates four primary technology platforms:

  • SOLID4 and SOLID5500 (Life Technologies)
  • Ion Proton and Ion Personal Genome Machine (PGM) (Ion Torrent)
  • NextSeq 500 (Illumina)
  • Affymetrix GeneChip

We also provide the following equipment:

  • Sonicators (Bioruptor and S2 Covaris)
  • Real time PCR machines (Step One plus and Light Cycler 480)
  • Agilent 2100 Bioanalyzer

These technologies allow the core to support a wide array of experimental approaches including:

  • Whole gene expression profiling (over 30 organisms available)
  • Splice variant quantification
  • Copy number variation
  • Secondary validation of array data
  • Whole genome association studies
  • ChIP-seq analysis
