The Genomics and Epigenomics Lab offers a range of services from small procedures like DNA extraction up to sequencing entire genes or genomes. This means you can start and finish your entire experiments all from the comfort of our lab. Whatever you want to do, we can offer tailored packages to fit your needs. Our packages mostly include the use of bench space, consumables, equipment, plastic ware and reagents all brought to you at reduced market prices. This is a strictly non-profit organization and revenues are considered donations that are partly used to fund further research in our unit.

- Regarding the forms, kindly follow the following steps:
- First Step: To request a quote for your technique of interest, kindly fill “Step 1: Quote Request Form”. Filling this form accurately with your needs helps us to give you the actual price of the service that we provide to you. You will receive the quote within 48 hours from the submission.
- Second Step: When delivering your samples, kindly fill the “Step 2: Samples Submission Form”. This form will provide us with the data of your samples we received. So it has to be filled precisely. Samples will not be processed unless the samples submission form is successfully submitted.
- Third Step: After receiving the results of your samples in the form you requested, please fill “Step 3: Customers Feedback Form”. Filling this form will help us improve the services we provide.
- Polices and Guidelines
The genomics Unit will provide guidance with project design if necessary; however, the final experimental design is the customer’s responsibility. so Kindly read carefully.
- Required Documents
- Fluorometric quantification on the DeNovix QFX fluorometer for specifying concentration.
- Sample integrity/quality analysis using gel or automated electrophoresis on a Bioanalyzer.
- If the customer does not have access to proper quality control instrumentation, Genomics Unit can provide the services needed.
- Submitted Samples
At least one of the following quality control files should be provided prior to delivering the samples:
- Please remember that it is your responsibility to keep track of the identification of your samples. When filling out the sample data sheet (in section C), use a unique sample ID and description that matches your records.
- All samples will be quantified on the DeNovix prior to acceptance for sequencing.
- Only samples that meet technical requirements (quality, concentration and volume) will be accepted for further processing. The customer will be notified if any samples fail to meet the requirements.
- The raw sequencing data will be de-multiplexed and provided to the customer as FASTQ files, BAM or VCF depending on the customer’s requirements.
- The analysis results will be available only for ONE MONTH.
N.B.: Both that both the samples and data will be disposed of after one month from delivering the data.
N.B.: A disclaimer document for the samples' information and data providence has to be signed upon delivering the samples to our lab to initiate the processing of the samples.
