Sequencing Facility (SF)
Providing high-throughput sequencing technologies to identify single nucleotide polymorphisms, insertions and deletions, and copy number or structural variations
The introduction of DNA sequencing instruments capable of producing millions of DNA sequence reads in a single run has profoundly altered the landscape of genetics and cancer biology. Complex questions can now be answered at previously unthinkable speeds and a fraction of their former cost. At the Sequencing Facility, NCI researchers are provided access to the latest technologies, with consultation and Q&A services available throughout the design and execution of sequencing projects.
