The Biomedical Genomics Core (BGC) provides a complete solution for genomics research, from the initial steps of experimental design to the production of high quality, comprehensively analyzed data sets.
We are a Core Facility of The Research Institute at Nationwide Children's Hospital and a Satellite Facility for the Comprehensive Cancer Center at the Ohio State University. As part of the Center for Microbial Pathogenesis, we are also conducting cutting edge research in the field of Biomedical Genomics.
The BGC is an Agilent Certified Service Provider for Target Enrichment (Agilent SureSelect) and several microarray-based services including one and two-color gene expression, miRNA profiling and array Comparative Genomic Hybridization (aCGH) - the first academic core lab to achieve this in the United States. Full details of the program can be found here:BGC - Agilent Certified Service provider.
In addition to our microarray based genomic analysis services, we provide a wide variety of Next Generation Sequencing services utilizing both the Illumina HiSeq 2000 and the Life Technologies Ion Torrent Personal Genome Analyzer. 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.
