We are the only core facility of RIKEN in western Japan that provides technical support on both next-generation sequencing and mass spectrometry. We host postdoctoral lab experts for sample QC as well as bioinformaticians who process large-scale sequence analysis, and this staff organization has enabled handling of diverse projects in a biologist-oriented manner. Following contributions to international genome consortia for several non-model animals, we aim to conduct original research and technical development by means of molecular evolutionary approaches for sound cross-species comparisons of DNA and protein sequences.
Overview of our research support lineup
・Sanger (capillary) sequencing
・DNA clone distribution
・DNA/protein sequence informatics
・ChIP-seq sample preparation
