The University of Tartu, Institute of Genomics Core Facility is dedicated to providing genotyping and sequencing services to researchers, clinicians and others with the state-of-the-art technology of Illumina. In 2006, we started with Illumina BeadArray platform. Today, the core facility is equipped with Illumina’s HiSeq2500, MiSeq and NextSeq500 for wholegenome and targeted sequencing projects, and a iScan for genome-wide genotyping and methylation analyses.
From the beginning of 2012, the Core Facility is certified by Illumina as Illumina Certified Service Providers (CSPro) for genotyping and sequencing.
The equipment of the Core Facility has financed from different European funding instruments like FP7 grant and EU structural Fund grants.
