RI Genomics and Sequencing Center
The Rhode Island Genomics and Sequencing Center (RIGSC) was established to provide technical and analytical support for molecular biology and genomics research at the University of Rhode Island and all RI EPSCoR institutions. The mission of the RIGSC is to facilitate interdisciplinary genomics research and undergraduate and graduate student training opportunities by providing researchers access to cutting-edge technologies in the field of genomics.
The RIGSC offers services in robotic sample preparation, DNA sequencing, fragment analysis , real-time quantitative PCR and the identification of microbial species and phenotypes. We also provide imaging services using transmitted light, epifluorescence, and laser scanning confocal microscopy, as well as cryostat sectioning of frozen specimens. Investigators are encouraged to contact us to incorporate our services into your research and teaching needs.
The RIGSC is available to students, staff, and faculty at URI, as well as non-URI researchers.
