The WGP Genomic Facility laboratory is located within the Sir Geraint Evans Building, Heath Park site, and utilises access to NGS equipment within Cardiff University and the NHS All Wales Genomics Service (AWMGS). Our wet lab staff has decades of experience having witnessed the shfit from “first” to “next” generation sequencing and the implementation of the latter with its applications to human and cancer genetics.
High-throughput (next generation) DNA and RNA sequencing is routinely utilised in modern genetic and biomedical research, for a range of applications. Wales Gene Park offers a flexible, bespoke approach to support researchers access high-throughput sequencing technology for biomedical research in Wales. We work with academic and non-academic colleagues, providing expert advice and support from project design through to tertiary analysis, to suit the needs of the research project. We work to ensure access to these technologies is at a reasonable cost to encourage effective uptake of this fundamental technology.
NGS Library Preparation
Our staff can provide continous support and assistance at all steps of the genomics pipeline, including DNA extractions, DNA/RNA library prepaprations, library QC, Illumina sequencing and NGS data QC. Here’s some of the workflows that our staff routinely employs for NGS library preparation:
HaloPlex HS Target Enrichment System (Agilent Technologies)
Illumina DNA PCR-Free Library Prep, Tagmentation (Illumina)
