The High-Throughput Genomics and Bioinformatic Analysis Shared Resource provides investigators at HCI and the University of Utah with access to Illumina high-throughput sequencing (HiSeq and MiSeq) and to the Affymetrix and Agilent Technologies microarrays platforms. This resource operates as a full-service facility that provides expertise in experimental handling of all aspects of these technologies. The Bioinformatics Shared Resource (BSR) consists of five highly qualified data analyst programmer scientists who assist campus researchers in all aspects of genomic analysis.

A message to our users: Huntsman Cancer Institute's genomic data repository, GNomEX, is growing exponentially. We have recently purchased a cloud-based genomics data storage and bioinformatic analysis platform called Seven Bridges Genomics. Find more information about this platform and what this means for our users in these documents:
