With the goal of understanding genetic changes and mechanisms underlying human diseases, the Molecular Genomics Laboratory Core Facility supports NICHD investigators by providing next-generation DNA and RNA sequencing services for genomic and genetic research. Our services include full gene analysis by DNA sequencing (whole exome, targeted exome, gene-specific), as well as whole transcriptome sequencing (RNA-Seq), microRNA sequencing, microbiome sequencing, bisulfite sequencing (DNA methylome), ChIP-Seq, and ribosomal profiling. The facility provides significant primary data processing and downstream bioinformatics support. Our mission is to offer accurate and innovative tools to facilitate research on the diagnosis, counseling, and treatment of hereditary disorders.
