GEH sequencing platform

PNG - 72.8 ko

The ’Human & Environmental Genomics’ core facility belongs to the University of Rennes 1, the University hospital of Rennes and the CNRS (France). Our structure benefits from a scientific working environment combining both ecological and medical fields of research, which enables us to offer original sequencing strategies and make possible transfers of knowledge and skills, gained in both domains.
Staff consists of 3 engineers (wet lab) and 1 bioinformatics engineer.

The core facility HEG carries out and assists your sequencing projects, from library preparation to primary bioinformatics analyses of the data generated by our NGS (Next Generation Sequencing) equipment. We provide a self-service access to different state of the art equipment.
The core facility HEG also carries out projects linked to high throughput quantitative PCR, genotyping and target enrichment (amplicon libraries)
Besides, the core facility HEG ensures technological watch to offer the state-of-the-art equipment in genomics fields to the users.
