The UCLA Neuroscience Genomics Core (UNGC) offers array based genotyping and methylation screening services and both short (Illumina SBS) and long read (PacBio HiFi) sequencing services in the Gonda research facility on the UCLA Westwood campus. The UNGC is a not for profit academic resource available to UCLA neuroscience labs, affiliates and their collaborators. The full service core facility operates PacBio Sequel II e and Illumina NovaSeq sequencers. We also operate an Illumina Beadlab genotyping platform and a full complement of supporting equipment. The UNGC is directed by Dr. Nelson Freimer.

Services include:

  • RNA library construction and sequencing
  • DNA library construction and sequencing
  • Whole genome genotyping using all currently available Illumina arrays
  • Whole genome methylation using Illumina Methylation Epic arrays
