Service Providers of Genomic Technologies (fee for service)

SAHMRI David Gunn Genomics Facility
Located in the iconic SAHMRI building in the heart of the Adelaide Biomedical precinct, the David Gunn Genomics Facility provides Illumina-based next generation sequencing services including library preparation, sequencing and bioinformatics.
Australian Genome Research Facility (AGRF)
Australian Genome Research Facility Ltd (AGRF), a not-for-profit company, is Australia’s largest provider of genomics services and solutions. AGRF has laboratories in Brisbane, Sydney, Melbourne, Adelaide and Perth, each providing a gateway to a national network of state-of-the-art facilities, technology and expertise.
Monash Health Translation Precinct (MHTP)
The MHTP Medical Genomics Facility encompasses four core centres: The Gandel Charitable Trust Sequencing Centre provides a Sanger Sequencing service utilising Life Technologies 3130xl Genetic Analyzers. This Sanger Sequencing service is NATA accredited and complies with ISO 15189:2007. The ACRF Centre for Cancer Genomic Medicine provides Next Generation Sequencing services utilising the Illumina HiSeq 1500 and Ion Torrent systems. The Single Cell Genomics Centre hosts the latest Fluidigm C1™ Single Cell Auto Prep, which is based on Fluidigm's innovative microfluidic technology, enabling researchers to rapidly and reliably isolate, process, and profile individual cells for genomic analysis. The Centre also hosts a Fluidigm Biomark™ HD system, which enables automated high throughput qPCR of over 9,000 reactions in a single run. The MHTP also hosts a Functional Genomics Core Facility.
ACRF Centre for Cancer Genomic Medicine
The Centre is based at the Monash Institute for Medical Research (MIMR) in Melbourne and provides a Next-Generation Sequencing (NGS) service utilising the latest Illumina HiSeq 1500 and Ion Torrent systems. Services include whole or targeted genome, whole transcriptome, small RNA sequencing, gene expression profiling, ChIP-Seq or methylation analysis.
Ramaciotti Centre for Genomics UNSW
The Ramaciotti Centre for Genomics core facility is located at the University of New South Wales (UNSW). Its mission is to deliver internationally competitive genomic services to the Australian research community. This facility provides equipment and expertise to assist researchers in the use of microarrays, sequencing and high-throughput technology.
Auckland Genomics
Auckland Genomics, based at the University of Auckland, provides access to next-generation library making and sequencing (Illumina MiSeq, NextSeq, Chromium 10x), as well as gene expression technologies using several platforms (Affymetrix GeneChip, NanoString)
Kinghorn Centre for Clinical Genomics (KCCG)
The KCCG (Gravan Institute, Sydney) was established to further the use of genomic information in patient care. KCCG is the only Centre is Australasia to have the Illumina HiSeqX Ten system; 10x Illumina HiSeq instruments capable (together) of sequencing 18,000 whole human genomes at minimum 30x coverage. Access is open to Australian researchers. To utilise this resource please see specific contact details in the link above.
Centre for Biodiversity Analysis
The Centre for Biodiversity Analysis (CBA) is a collaboration between The Australian National University (ANU) and the Commonwealth Scientific & Industrial Research Organisation (CSIRO) to exploit these new and emerging capabilities in the discovery, understanding and conservation of Australia’s unique biodiversity.
ACRF Biomolecular Resource Facility
CRF Biomolecular Resource Facility is the core facility at the Australian National University providing researchers with access to state of the art techniques for molecular and genetic based studies. We provide service and project consultancy for our clients on a number of Next-Generation Sequencing platforms, Sanger sequencing and Realtime PCR.

Genome Web
GenomeWeb LLC is an independent, privately held online publisher based in New York. Since 1997, GenomeWeb has served the global community of scientists, technology professionals, and executives who use and develop the latest advanced tools in molecular biology research and molecular diagnostics.
SeqAnwers is a traditional web forum for Next Generation (and Sanger) DNA sequencing queries and discussions, where each post follows the other by creation date. You may search SeqAnswers to find valuable information from fellow users and providers of sequencing technologies and is focussed on technical aspects and troubleshooting of the technology, as well as some primary bioinformatical analysis challenges.
