About Us

ARK-Genomics Centre for Functional Genomics ARK-Genomics is a high-throughput technology laboratory focused on studies of genome structure and genetic variation, gene expression and gene function. ARK-Genomics provides an extensive range of services including:

  • DNA sequencing of model and non-model genomes using both Next Generation and Sanger sequencing
  • Gene expression analysis using both microarrays and Next Generation Sequencing
  • High throughput genotyping of SNP and copy number variants
  • Data collection and analysis supported in-house high performance computing facilities and expertise
  • Extensive EST clone collections for a number of animal species
  • All of the commercially available microarray tools from Affymetrix, Illumina, Agilent and Nimblegen
  • Parentage testing using microsatellites and smaller SNP panels
  • ARK-Genomics has developed a network of researchers whom we support through each stage of their genomics research, from grant application, experimental design and technology selection, performing wet laboratory protocols, through to the analysis of the data often in conjunction with commercial partners.

An important part of the ARK-Genomics service is the opportunity to engage with other scientists and to raise awareness through our training courses, networking events such as our successful conference series. ARK-Genomics continues to expand its infrastructure, biological resources, skills and expertise – please explore this website to see how we might be able to help you.
