    Never has there been a more exciting time in the history of genetics and genomics research than today! Genomic technologies are advancing on a daily basis and, as such, genomic discovery is also advancing at an unprecedented pace.

    The core labs at the Heflin Center for Genomic Sciences provide you with the ability to examine the effects of genetic variation and gene function across a wide range of research disciplines.

    The Genomics Core Laboratory has the capability of performing standard fluorescent and Next-Generation Sequencing (NGS), high and low throughput custom genotyping from 1 SNP to more than 5 million SNPs, whole genome linkage and association studies, targeted and whole genome gene expression, and targeted and whole genome assays.

    We put the power of innovation and technology in your hands by giving you access to advanced methodologies for genetic and genomic investigation right here at UAB.
