Head of Core Facility
Application of new high-throughput methods into basic and applied research. Development and optimisation of methods for genomic analyses.
Combination of high-end equipment and expertise for the complete experimental workflow from advanced sample preparation to complex genome analysis. Precise sample preparation techniques (cell sorting, microdissection) followed by combination of various complementary approaches in the analysis of the genome (massive parallel sequencing, microarrays, quantitative PCR) will make it possible to perform even very complex experimental designs including single cell genomics or diseased vs. healthy cells genome and transcriptome analyses.
Key Equipment (Core Facility fully operational from 2014)
- High-throughput massive parallel sequencers
- FACS cell sorter
- Cell analysis system
- Real-time microfluidic qPCR
- Microarray systems
All CEITEC core facilities are available to external users (academia and companies). Czech and international researchers from universities and research institutes interested in accessing core facilities can benefit from support of CEITEC – open access project funded by the Ministry of Education, Youth and Sports of the Czech Republic.
