Genomics Core Facility (GCF)

Main content


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 also offer expert advice on experimental design and bioinformatics analysis, training and assistance on data storage solutions.


The Genomics Core Facility (GCF) is hosted by the Department of Clinical Science, in collaboration with Haukeland University Hospital.

The Trond Mohn Foundation (www.mohnfoundation.no) also funds an engineer position as bioinformatician at the GCF, to support bioinformatic infrastructure and analysis of NGS data for the GCF users. The service focuses on applied medical bioinformatics (SAMB), in collaboration with the Section for bioinformatics at Haukeland University hospital and ELIXIR. For further information, please contact Aashish Srivastava.

GCF is a partner in 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-throughput genomic services. The applications include whole genome sequencing, exome sequencing, RNAseq and other relevant high-throughput sequencing applications (upon request), using an Illumina NovaSeq6000. In addition to our wet lab services, we deliver advice on experimental design, standard bioinformatics analysis, training, and assistance on data storage solutions.
