Core Lab: Genomics

What is the Genomics Core Lab?

core lab genomics

Core Lab Genomics - Bio Accelerated Sequencing Environment - is the Tecnologico de Monterrey Laboratory where Massive Next Generation Genomic Sequencing (NGS) is performed.

Our VISION is to strengthen research, generation, and transfer of knowledge in Mexico through the production and analysis of genomic data applied transversally in areas such as clinical medicine, genomic medicine, agribusiness, food, disease diagnosis, the study of environmental samples, and genomic epidemiology.

Why work with us?

Our Genomics Core Lab is the only laboratory at the National Level that has all the Illumina technology equipment, from the smallest (Iseq) to the largest (Novaseq), allowing us to handle greatly diverse samples for sequencing, from small genomes of microorganisms to large quantities of genomes of complex organisms. We have established services such as Whole Genome Sequencing (WGS), Exome, RNA-Seq, Single Cell Sequencing, Shotgun metagenomics, 16s Metagenomics, Sequencing of Specific Fragments, and Environmental DNA.

Another added value is that the operation model allows us to provide external services to researchers outside of Tecnologico de Monterrey. In addition, the commercial agreements with Illumina enable us to offer competitive prices and results delivery times in Latin America. We also have highly trained specialists and automated peripheral equipment for generating libraries, allowing us to execute projects robustly, efficiently, and reliably.

Finally, the human resources expertise of Core Lab Genomics facilitates our very personalized attending to projects in various areas, such as food, medicine, agricultural industry, and diagnostics.
