Our core houses 4 Illumina MiSeqs and 1 Illumina NextSeq for High-throughput sequencing of DNA and RNA, and 2 ABI 3730XL DNA analyzers for Sanger DNA sequencing. For quantitative PCR we have an ABI StepOne plus real-time PCR system.  Our core also utilizes Biomek FXP robotics for large-scale library preparation and PCR amplicon purification. For DNA/RNA quality control and quantitation we utilize an Agilent bioanalyzer, Agilent Tape station 2200, and a Qubit 3.0 fluorometer.
