The Genomics Core Facility (GCF) at the University of Bergen provides a wide range of high-throughput genomic services to the local and international scientific community. We offer an extensive set of technologies to study genome structure, dynamics and function using Illumina next generation sequencing. In addition to our laboratory services, we deliver expert advice on experimental design and bioinformatics assistance and training. 

The Genomics Core Facility (GCF) is hosted by the Department of Clinical Science, in collaboration with Haukeland University Hospital. The activities are supported by a grant from Trond Mohn Stiftelse/Trond Mohn Foundation (www.mohnfoundation.no). The Trond Mohn Foundation has also founded a six years position as service bioinformatician. 

GCF is partner of the Norwegian consortium for sequencing and personalized medicine (NorSeq), supported by an infrastructure grant from the Research Council of Norway. 



GCF provides a wide range of high-througputh genomic services. The applications include whole genome sequencing, exome sequencing, RNA seq and other relevant high-throughput sequencing applications (upon request), using an Illumina NovaSeq6000. In addition to our wetlab services, we deliver advice on experimental design and basic bioinformatics assistance and training.
