Both the Victor Chang Cardiac Research Institute and the Garvan Institute of Medical Research have genomics facilities.
The genomic core provides expertise and access to sequencing technology for Victor Chang Cardiac Research Institute and
precinct researchers. The facility manages a Proton high throughput
sequencing instrument which is supported by an Ion Chef robotic
workstation allowing efficient and reliable processing of samples.
Researchers can also receive advice and support in many aspects of their
experiments from design, sample preparation through to bioinformatics.
Kinghorn Centre for Clinical Genomics (KCCG)
Garvan has a purpose-built genomics facility for next
generation sequencing, for both clinical-grade genomic sequencing,
sequencing of non-human research samples, and other next generation
sequencing applications, such as RNA-Seq, ChIP-Seq and bisulfite
sequencing. KCCG undertakes collaborative research projects with
scientists at the Garvan Institute as well as external partners, in all
areas of medical research. As well as sequencing and high performance
computing, KCCG also undertakes genome-based research to improve the
interpretation of genomes and genome variants with the overall aim to
further the use of genomic information in patient care. For more
