The UPMC Genome Center’s mission is to provide the highest quality DNA and RNA analysis services to support physicians in helping their patients. We support our research collaborators in their pursuit of understanding DNA and RNA sequence variations in relation to the phenotypic variability in human disease.
Our team consists of professionally-trained, certified and experienced lab technicians and bioinformaticians who work tirelessly to assist with requests from small to large-scale projects. Our team works closely with our clients to provide high-quality sequencing services.
Based in the heart of Pittsburgh’s technology hub, the Genome Center is both a CAP and CLIA certified lab employing the latest sequencing technologies and the highest quality of bioinformatic analyses. We provide quality, automated laboratory services for whole genome, whole exome and whole transcriptome sequencing employing numerous robotic liquid handlers and a variety of sequencing platforms (incl, Illumina’s NovaSeq 6000 series).
