SKCCC Experimental and Computational Genomics Core

The Next Generation Sequencing Center (NGSC) is a member of the new Experimental and Computational Genomics Core (ECGC) at SKCCC. The NGSC, Microarry Core, and Bioinformatics core have come together to provide integrated services and educational appropriates for the Johns Hopkins University and cancer center members. 

Overview of Services

We want to make sure that your experiment is done well, from the design stage through sequencing and then analysis.

We try to support any research project. Some common applications include:

  • Human exome sequencing
  • ChIP-sequencing
  • RNA-seq
  • DNA methylation analysis
  • Eukaryotic and microbial whole genome sequencing
  • microRNA sequencing
  • Diverse array of custom projects


We can also handle a variety of purely computational requests on a fee-for-service basis.

Please go to our FAQ page for more detailed information.

While we prioritize projects from Cancer Center labs; we efficiently address projects from any other Johns Hopkins investigators.
