Dept of Genetics Research Services

The Department of Genetics offers a range of genomics techniques for UMCG research groups, from fully automated RNA/DNA isolation to next generation sequencing and SNP-array applications.

Please see the left-hand menu for more information about our services.

  • Next Generation Sequencing - DNA sequencing & RNA sequencing
  • Illumina Infinium Arrays
  • DNA/RNA isolation and quality analysis


Researchers can read about the applications we offer in the left-hand menu. Please contact us if you want to make use of any of these applications. In an initial conversation with you, we will:

  • Discuss the experimental set-up
  • Provide information on the materials needed
  • Explain our conditions and disclaimers.

Then we will provide you with an estimate of the costs and a contract, including our terms of agreement and disclaimers. Once the contract has been signed by the researcher, your experiment will be planned.

After finishing the experiments, we will perform our standard quality control on the data. When the data satisfy our agreement with you, we will deliver the raw data to you. However, downstream analysis is not part of our standard service. Should you need help we can refer you to the Genomics Coordination Centre (email) for more advanced data analysis services, such as mapping reads and variant calling.


If you would like to discuss your project or ideas, or if you need further information about our facilities, please contact us email
