For the latest Advanced Genomics Core updates, including updated operating procedures, please visit the BRCF Research Reactivation Guidelines.

The Advanced Genomics Core

mission is to facilitate research in cutting-edge fields of genetics and genomics by implementing complex technologies. Chief among these is “next-generation” sequencing (NGS), which has revolutionized research in virtually all biological fields in the past decade. By housing NGS and companion genomic technologies in a single facility, we provide centralized expertise in advanced methods that enables all researchers to effectively exploit them for making scientific discoveries.

Core Announcements

  • In observance of Independence Day, the Advanced Genomics Core is closed Friday, July 1st and Monday, July 5th. There will be no courier pickup on those days. Normal operations will resume on Tuesday, July 6th.
  • MSRB II Eurofins Drop-box has moved! Effective April 12, 2021, sample for Sanger Sequencing can be submitted to the Eurofins drop-box located at the MSRB II dock.
  • Remote Drop-off Update: Samples at the AGC remote drop off locations at MSRB II and NCRC dock 90 are picked up daily between 2:00-3:00 p.m.
  • Want 110 terabytes of free, secure, online and replicated storage? How about 60 months of computing? Even better: how about hands-free, fast-as-can-be delivery of your data from the AGC? Check out the latest news from Academic IT on the Research Computing Package. Work with your friendly neighborhood HITS folks to get your lab set up, and let us know on your next submission. We’ll push data directly to your Turbo storage area when your sequencing data is complete!
