Mammalian Genotyping Core

Overview of Services

The Mammalian Genotyping Core (MGC) is a component of the Integrated Genomics Core/High Throughput Sequencing Facility (HTSF) at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill.  The Mammalian Genotyping Core (MGC) mission is to support population, basic, clinical and translational research by providing centralized cost-efficient, high quality genotyping and methylation services. The MGC provides services using Illumina BeadArray and Infinium microarray assay technologies for Single Nucleotide Polymorphism (SNP) Genotyping, Copy Number Variant (CNV), Loss of Heterozygosity (LOH), Insertions-Deletion (indel), Structural Variant, and DNA Methylation Analysis. We can assist you with selecting the appropriate arrays to meet your needs.  Please contact us to discuss your genotyping and/or epigenetic analysis through a consultation request.
