Genome Technology Center

NYU School of Medicine’s Genome Technology Center provides faculty, staff, and partnering researchers with a range of services related to genome, epigenome, and transcriptome analysis. We offer numerous advanced technologies, including the following:

  • Illumina deep sequencing and sample preparation for a variety of applications, including DNA and RNA sequencing (DNA- and RNA-seq), exome sequencing, targeted capture, chromatin immunoprecipitation sequencing (ChIP-seq), methylation sequencing (Methyl-seq), metagenomics, and many others
  • Automation of Illumina library and targeted capture preps, including 16S ribosomal RNA (rRNA) sequencing
  • Oxford Nanopore sequencing (long reads)
  • Bio-Rad Droplet Digital polymerase chain reaction (PCR)
  • Nanostring nCounter
  • Single-cell RNA- and DNA-seq using the C1 Auto Prep System from Fluidigm, and 10x Genomics Chromium System

Working closely with the Applied Bioinformatics Laboratories, we also provide expertise on the best strategies to help you achieve research goals in any field related to genomics, and we can tailor bioinformatics analysis to your individual project. If you supply us with nucleic acids, we can perform every step required to help you achieve your desired results.

New Sequencing Technologies

To best serve the research community, we’re continually evaluating novel technologies and acquiring new instruments. We can now conduct 800-cell high-throughput single-cell RNA-seq on the C1 Auto Prep System from Fluidigm, and offer all single-cell RNA-seq and structural variants using the 10x Genomics Chromium System. We have also recently acquired an Illumina HiSeq 4000 population-level high-throughput sequencer. We offer full support for all platforms.

Sequencing Results

To access sequencing results, you need approval from the relevant principal investigator and an account from the administrators of NYU's high-performance computing facility. Please ask the principal investigator to email, indicating approval for your access and stating whether the access will be for one run or all of the runs from the lab.

Contact Us

The Genome Technology Center is located at 550 First Avenue, in Medical Science Building 303–308. To inquire about our capabilities and services, please email us at or call us at 212-263-8048. To reach Adriana Heguy, PhD, director, email
