The Vincent J. Coates Genomics Sequencing Laboratory (GSL) at the University of California, Berkeley, is a core research facility managed by the California Institute for Quantitative Biosciences (QB3), a cooperative effort between the state of California, private industry, venture capital, and the UC Campuses at Berkeley, San Francisco, and Santa Cruz.
Partnered with the Functional Genomics Laboratory FGL (255 LSA) for Library Preparation, the GSL in Stanley Hall provides Next-Generation Sequencing on Illumina’s HiSeq and MiSeq platforms, as well as Illumina Array services and Biospecimen processing. The GSL’s mission is to make DNA sequencing, Illumina Array Services, and Biospecimen processing affordable to UC Berkeley and the greater UC community. We also provide our services to researchers at other research institutions and to industry.
The GSL is currently equipped with 1 Illumina HiSeq2500 in Rapid Mode, 2 Illumina HiSeq4000, 2 Illumina MiSeq systems, and an Illumina HiScan for arrays. The GSL/FGL can also facilitate both PacBio RSII and PacBio Sequel projects.
