The Emory Integrated Genomics Core’s (EIGC) central mission is to help Emory investigators effectively use state-of-the-art genomics platforms in pursuit of their research goals. Our primary platforms use next-generation sequencing technologies to characterize genomes in order to use these data as tools of discovery. Services include whole genome single nucleotide polymorphism (SNP) genotyping, whole genome sequencing, structural variation detection, and 16S rDNA amplification and sequencing for microbiome studies. The EIGC also maintains CLIA certification, offering assay validation and nucleic acid extraction services from a wide variety of biological sources, including blood, serum, plasma, solid tissues, cell extracts, etc., to support both basic research and clinical efforts on campus. We can also help characterize and confirm the identify of cell lines, which is critical for scientific rigor and reproducibility. To effectively implement our services and aid Emory investigators, we provide consultations, expert training, and support on many of our systems. We also provide letters of support for grant applications and our Major Equipment and Facilities and Resources are available on the Resources page of our website. Along with providing instrument access, another goal of the EIGC is to serve as an expert knowledge base for the research community at Emory. We strive to unite diverse interests, allowing investigators to share ideas, expertise, and instrumentation. Developing new genomics techniques and acquiring new cutting-edge equipment are central to our mission to serve the Emory community.
