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), cytogenetics, DNA copy number profiling and DNA methylation is also proposed.
The Genomics Platform offers a complete solution from optimisation of experimental design to data analysis.
Experimental designRecommendations about samples preparation, replicates number, internal controls are given. Guidelines for the selection of the relevant technology depending on the project are provided.
ExperimentSamples processing is performed either by the user under full supervision of the Platform staff or by the Platform staff itself.
Data analysisDepending 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.
Gene expression research & Digital Spatial Profiling
October 19, 2021
NanoString and the Genomics Platform will hold a workshop on October 19, 2021, at the CMU. The new GeoMX Digital Spatial Profiler that allows highly multiplexed spatial RNA and protein profiling will be presented. Updates on the nCounter system (available on the Platform) will be given. Pre Charna Dibner (Depts of Medicine and Cell Physiology and Metabolism) will also share her last NanoString data. More details in the flyer. Registration is required.
SARS-CoV-2 whole genome
SARS-CoV-2 whole genome sequencing is now available at the Platform. Library preparation is performed with the amplicon-based Paragon Genomics panel. Amplicon sequencing is done on the Illumina MiSeq (2 x 150 bp). Data analysis is proposed (up the lineage assignment).
October 18, 2019
This event will feature speakers who will present their findings and experiences in using our services. The meeting will also be an opportunity to meet specialists from Thermo Fisher Scientific and Illumina for a presentation and discussion on the latest technological advances and solutions. Details on the flyer. Registration is required.
