The final week of February, 2019 (Feb. 25 - Mar 1), iLab Operations Software will be conducting an internal event and will be staffed at significantly reduced levels. iLab Support will prioritize critical issues first (i.e. issues that prevent key workflows from completing) and to escalate an issue, please add "Urgent" to the ticket/ email subject or press "1", when prompted, on the iLab Support phone (regional numbers can be found here). Regular support tickets will be monitored periodically and processed in order of submission starting March 4th, 2019. During this time, you can also refer to the iLab Help Site and iLab Status Page for site information. Please note that this will not affect standard Core Facility Operations.

Epigenomics Shared Facility


The Epigenomics Shared Facility, part of Einstein’s Center for Epigenomics and an Illumina CSPro (certified service provider) laboratory, offers massively-parallel sequencing services, including fully-automated library preparation using TECAN Robotics, quality control and assurance, and a number of assays to study the epigenome. Sample information is uploaded through a web-based interface (WASP) prior to sample submission, allowing LIMS and automated analysis through the WASP system software, returning data through visualization and web links. Data analytical services are provided by the Computational and Statistical Epigenomics Group. For a list of available assays, please click here.


Support for diverse assays to study the epigenome include:

  • Chromatin immunoprecipitation assays
    • Massively parallel sequencing-based (ChIP-seq)
  • Cytosine methylation assays
    • Massively parallel sequencing-based HELP-tagging
    • Whole genome bisulphite sequencing (MethylC-Seq)
  • Directional RNA-Seq, miRNA-Seq
  • Nuclease hypersensitivity mapping
  • RNA:DNA hybrid mapping
