Functional Genomics

The Functional Genomics team provides state-of-the-art support to FMI scientists for various next-generation sequencing (NGS) applications, from single-cell transcriptomics, epigenomics to whole genome sequencing.

We offer advices on experimental design, perform library preparation for supported applications, and manage NGS sequencing on Illumina platforms. Our laboratory is equipped with Illumina instruments (MiSeq, NextSeq and HiSeq2500), an Agilent Bravo liquid handling robot and a 10X genomics single-cell controller.

In addition, we collaborate with research groups to develop and implement new methods.

Genomics is a very fast evolving research field and we aim to keep at the forefront of the technology and share knowledge with all FMI scientists.
