Microbiome Core Facility

Featured Services:

Microfluidics high-throughput qPCR for detection of Bifidobacterium species.

Digital PCR

micro_modThe mission of the Microbiome Core Facility at UNC is to provide the research community with the facilities and the expertise to characterize complex microbial communities from different environments.  The Core has state of the art instrumentation and extensively trained personnel that provide support from the experimental design phase of your project to the analysis of high-throughput data.

Services offered by the Core include metagenomics methods to determine the composition and function of microbial communities using amplicon, Whole Genome Shotgun (WGS) and RNA sequencing, and traditional and high-throughput quantitative (q)PCR.
