Genomics Unit

The Genomics Unit offers high-throughput (Next generation) DNA and RNA sequencing, as well as several methods for single nucleotide polymorphism detection.

The unit is mostly robotized in order to facilitate large expression profiling studies and genetic projects. It also supports the generation and utilization of gene expression arrays and provides DNA and RNA isolation services.

Large collections of public microarray data, but also shielded analysis of private microarray dataset(s), can be analyzed via an online genomics analysis and visualization tool, the R2 platform. R2 offers amongst others, analyses such as gene views, differential expression, correlation, survival, genome browsing and pathway analyses. The R2 webserver is freely accessible and intended to be used by biologists, even those with little or no bioinformatics training.
