Welcome to the High Throughput Genomic Sequencing Facility

2016 HTSF Holiday Closure

With the upcoming holiday season, the HTSF wants to notify users of key dates to keep in mind for submission and data receipt. The HTSF will be open to receive material and assist with questions through 12/22. We will make every effort to complete sample processing by 12/23. But depending on services required, we cannot guarantee data receipt before closure. HTSF will be closed to conform to required UNC holiday closure and Illumina annual shut down. We will not be open to accept or process samples during the closure. We reopen 1/3/17.

Of course we will accept all material up until we close.  Samples dropped off after deadlines may not be started before the closure. If you have concerns, please contact us prior to your submission / drop off of materials so we can address any issues.

Thank you for your cooperation- The Staff of the HTSF

Detailed Holiday Closure Schedule


 The High-Throughput Sequencing Facility (HTSF) is a Genomic Core Facility at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. Our primary goal is to apply the tools of high-throughput sequencing technology and experience to enrich medicine and research at UNC.
High-throughput sequencing is an extremely fast developing technology that has revolutionized the study of biological samples of all kinds and the application of the information gained to a multitude of areas of study including but not limited to biomedical applications, public health, dentistry, anthropology and evolution. 

The High-Throughput Sequencing Facility can provide technical and data analysis support for researchers who wish to apply our state-of-the-art genomic techniques and sequencing technology to their work.
 We strongly recommend that you consult with HTSF at the earliest stage of planning your study so that we can assure that you are using the best approach to meet your objectives.
