The Advanced Genomics Core

Our 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 Testimonials

“The BRCF has been an incredible partner in our sequencing efforts from large-scale bulk sequencing to boutique full-length splice isoform studies of single-cell data sets. And all this in times of a pandemic and for studies of our patients with COVID associated AKI.”

Dr. Matthias Kretzler

“The AGC has been an excellent provider for our team’s sequencing needs including support for library preparations and sequencing. Because of these core services, we have been able to focus our effort on validation approaches and understanding the biological significance of sequencing-based discoveries.” 

Dr. Chad Brenner

“BRCF’s Advanced Genomics Core made a huge impact on our research when we were at Michigan. This is something that we miss greatly as we moved to the University of Texas Houston last summer. The BRCF Core is a tremendous asset of the Michigan research community, and you do amazing work!”

Dr. Noriaki Ono

Drop-off Locations:
