Epigenomics Shared Facility

Overview

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.

Services

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
