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 targeted capture, exome and whole human genome sequencing services, we also provide advanced bioinformatics analysis of the data, turning raw sequencing reads into comprhensively annotated variant lists.
