The National Genomics Core has been created to catalyse and facilitate genomics-driven discoveries and applications. The Core is accessible to all academic institutions and the industry for their own research and development. The Core houses and provides access to high-end genomics, computational and other relevant platforms to catalyse discoveries in all domains of biology. The ease of access to these platforms alleviates the challenges faced by researchers to generate and analyse genomics data on scale. This enabling environment is aimed to attract biologists to make insightful discoveries using the power of genomics.

Core Infrastructure

  • Our experimental work-horses include: for massively-parallel sequencing: NovaSeq 6000 (2 units), HiSeq 2500, MiSeq to Ion Torrent PGM; for single-cell genomics: 10X Chromium Controller; for microarray: iScan (2 units) and for Capillary Sequencing: 3500XL Genetic Analyzer.
  • Our data analysis work-horses include: compute platforms: One master node & 20 worker nodes (10 Teraflops); Data storage: 2 petabytes; Data transfer bandwidth:  100 Gbps (Internal), 1 Gbps (External), Hi-end workstations (10 units), efficient bioinformatics pipelines, separate FTP server for external data transfer via the National Knowledge Network.
