Sequencing Platform of Montpellier MGX – Montpellier GenomiX
The platform undertakes de novo sequencing, resequencing, RNA-Seq, DGE, small RNA-Seq, ChIP-Seq, HiC, identification of polymorphisms. It also provides access to its statistical analysis pipelines for identification of differentially expressed transcripts, regions linked by transcription factors and genomic amplifications/deletions.
MGX is equipped with 2 Illumina sequencers (HiSeq2500 and HiSeq2000) with a sequencing capacity of approximately 1,3 TB per week. The platform also has a 2 Genesis robots (Tecan). It has a team of 7 engineers : 4 molecular biologists and 3 bioinformaticians.
Main achievements :
Approximately 80 projects executed annually. The platform serves the domain of Health Biology but also that of Agronomy (Plant and Animal) and Environment Sciences.
