Who we are

The Genomics Platform of iGE3 and the University of Geneva provides consulting
and access to the state-of-the-art methods in genomic technologies.

These technologies enable whole genomes, exomes, transcriptomes as well as more targeted sequencing.
SNP analysis (Genome-Wide Association Studies and cytogenetics), DNA copy number profiling and DNA methylation is also proposed.

Services

The Genomics Platform offers a complete solution from advice on experimental design to data analysis.

 

Experimental design

Recommendations about samples preparation, replicates number, internal controls are given. Guidelines for the selection of the relevant technology depending on the project are provided.

Experiment

Samples processing is performed either by the user under full supervision of the Platform staff or by the Platform staff itself.

Data analysis

Depending on the application, standardized or more specific analysis pipelines are applied. Data processing tools are developed by the bioinformatics staff and proposed to users. Tools for data visualization, biological interpretation, pathway and Gene Ontology are also proposed.

  • QS12K for OpenArrays
    Posted on April 27, 2018

    The Genomics Platform is now equipped with the QuantStudio 12K OpenArray system from Thermo Fisher Scientific. OpenArrays are ideal for genotyping and expression studies that use large number of samples, assays, or both. Considering throughput, cost saving and flexibility, this system is currently the best-fit system for pharmacogenomics testing.
