Event Details


The Sequencing Facility ( is a second and third generation high-throughput sequencing core established by the Center for Cancer Research (CCR). Sequencing Facility’s (SF’s) primary mission is to utilize high-throughput sequencing technologies to enrich cancer research and ensure that the NCI community can remain at the leading edge of next-generation sequencing technology. The SF offers sequencing services on Illumina, Pacific Biosciences, and Oxford Nanopore platforms, as well as Single Cell and Genomics Mapping technology. These platforms have complementary strengths and can be used separately or in a combined approach to answer many genomics questions.
