The Integrated Genomics Shared Resource in the Georgia Cancer Center houses a complete Illumina NextGen Sequencing Facility including both HiSeq, MiSeq, and NextSeq 500 instruments.

Expertise for performing DNA-Seq, RNA-Seq, Chip-Seq, Methyl-Seq and targeted re-sequencing is available. Microarray resources offer the Affymetrix  Platform in order to facilitate exon-specific, oligonucleotide and genome-wide arrays.  

The Resource also offers single cell sequencing analysis using the Chromium Controller System. Bioinformatics support is available for data analysis for both sequencing and microarray data.

Partek Genomics Suite and Ingenuity Pathways Analysis Softwares are available for analyses of genomic data.
