The High Throughput Genome Center was established in the fall of 1999, and is probably one of the earliest high throughput genome centers in Western Pennsylvania. The seqeuencing center is deeply committed to provide cutting edge services and collaborations to investigators in University of Pittsburgh and its associated medical centers. Currently, the center supports high throughput paralleled sequencing for genome, transcriptome and epigenome analyses through Illumina and Oxford nanopore platforms, and array of RNA, DNA copy number, single nucleotide polymorphism and epigenome analyses through Affymetrix platform. It also provides extensive bioinformatic analyses to investigators through collaboration. The mission is to provide A to Z support to our investigators: From the consultation of the experimental design to data generation, the analyses of the results, machine learning, statistical validation and novel model construction, with the least cost to our clients as possible.
