Genomics Core Facility

Overview of Services

The Genomics Core Facility is housed within the Lewis-Sigler Institute for Integrative Genomics at Princeton University. The facility provides researchers with access to state of the art, high-throughput sequencing technologies and  is fully equipped for all aspects of microarray labeling, hybridization, data acquisition. In addition, the core facility offers sequencing library preparation services, consultation on experimental design and data analysis. Collaborations on developing novel sequencing applications are also welcome. The staff provide training on use of the self service equipment, troubleshooting, and assistance with software and data analysis. The Core Facility works closely with the Research Computing Staff to provide researchers with computing power and consulting services to analyze the Sequencing and Microarray data.

Phased Resumption of Research Plans  - Updated 6/19/20 - Facility is Currently Operating

The Genomics Core has begun a phased resumption of research.   Please see this letter from the Director, Wei Wang, detailing the plan to protect the health and safety of our staff and researchers.

The primary contact for the Genomics Core Facility is Wei Wang, the Director,, 609-258-6998.  If he is not available during the phased resumption operations, please contact Jessica Wiggins, the Lab Manager,, 609-258-9365.

We appreciate that you have chosen our facility to conduct your study and would like to remind you to remember us when writing your manuscript, as authorship and acknowledgment are indicators of our facilities success.  If we've contributed to the experimental design, produced experimental data, and/or helped with analysis, interpretation or writing of the text then you should acknowledge us. If the work carried out has been exceptional or the person doing it has done significantly more than would normally be expected you might consider naming that person in the acknowledgment or adding that individual as an author on the paper.
