The final week of February, 2019 (Feb. 25 - Mar 1), iLab Operations Software will be conducting an internal event with all product staff. iLab Support will be staffed at significantly reduced levels and will focus on critical issues only (i.e. issues that prevent key workflows from completing). For urgent matters, please add "Urgent" to the ticket/ email subject or press "1", when prompted, to escalate a call on the iLab Support phone (regional numbers can be found here) and we will prioritize those requests first. Regular support tickets will be monitored periodically and processed in order of submission starting March 4th, 2019. During this time, you can also refer to the iLab Help Site and iLab Status Page for site information. Please note that this will not affect standard Core Facility Operations.

Genomics Services Laboratory

Overview of Services


The Genomics Services Laboratory (GSL; previously known as the Biomedical Genomics Core) has extensive expertise in multiple aspects of genomics analysis, including consultation and assistance with experimental design, quality control of starting material (DNA or RNA), library preparation and multiple techniques for next-generation sequencing analysis.


The Institute for Genomic Medicine's Genomic Services Laboratory is a facility within The Research Institute at Nationwide Children's Hospital and a Shared Resource for the Comprehensive Cancer Center at the Ohio State University.


GSL provides a wide variety of Next Generation Sequencing services utilizing Illumina NovaSeq6000, HiSeq4000, MiSeq, MiniSeq, and iSeq systems.  For targetted capture, exome and whole human genome sequencing services we are also able to provide advanced bioinformatics analysis of the data, turning raw sequencing reads into comprhensively annotated variant lists.
