Both the Victor Chang Cardiac Research Institute and the Garvan Institute of Medical Research have genomics facilities.

Genomics Core

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.
