Genomics Core Services

The Yerkes NHP Genomics Core supports next generation sequencing research by assisting in experimental design, sample preparation, library prep and sequencing, and data analysis and bioinformatics. Due to our location at the Yerkes National Primate Research Center, we have developed extensive experience working with non-human primate genomes and other non-standard genomes in addition to the more commonly studied human and mouse genomes. Additionally, our close relationship with the Emory Vaccine Center means that we have significant expertise in the use of transcriptomics and genomics to study immune responses and repertoires.

We own an Illumina NovaSeq 6000 (supported by NIH S10 OD026799) and an Illumina MiSeq (supported by the Emory Center for AIDS Research), allowing us to provide rapid support for a wide range of NGS assays. Our website lists a selection of the more commonly run assays at our core, so if you see something that you would like us to help you with, or if you have an assay request that you don't see listed here, please feel free to contact us.
