Comprehensive Production and Analysis of Genetic Data
DNA Sequencing, Genotyping, SNP characterization

The Genetic Variation and Gene Discovery Core (GVGDC) is an institutional (non-profit) laboratory centralizing the production and analysis of DNA related data. Equipped with state-of-the-art instrumentation the facility provides services for:
  • Next Generation DNA sequencing
  • Conventional (Sanger) sequencing
  • High throughput custom SNP genotyping on the Illumina platform (GoldenGate assay)
  • Whole genome genotyping on the Illumina platform (Infinium assay)
  • Whole genome methylation analysis
  • Microsatellite genotyping
  • DNA extraction from blood, saliva, and other tissue
  • Translational research for gene based studies
Operating under Clinical Laboratory Improvement Amendments (CLIA) certification the facility can provide results for both research and molecular diagnostic purposes. Our technical team has extensive training in:
  • NGS Data quality control
  • Sequencing/Genotyping project management
  • Primer design and PCR optimization
  • Genomic database searches
  • Bioinformatic handling of large datasets
Established in 2001 at the Cincinnati Children's Hospital Research Foundation, the GVGDC has been a major player in the sequencing of the Pneumocystis carinii genome.

We are dedicated to the success of the researchers and clinicians that we serve!
