Texas A&M Institute for Genome Sciences and Society (TIGSS) has established Genomics Core in 2013 and is located at VMR 266.

Genomics Core houses various instruments and lab equipment to support genomics-based research and is located in VMR Addition 266. Training and experimental support is available. Please visit the TAMU Core Facilities page for available services.

 

Contact Andrew Hillhouse for more information about pricing and any other details.

 

Reserve equipment:

Most of the equipment listed below can be reserved through the iLab portal.

To use the facilities managed via the iLab system, you will need to establish an account.  For a member of a lab to be able to make requests in iLab, the lab’s PI must already be a registered user.

PIs cannot register for an account using the Login button.  To be added to the system, PIs need to send their UIN and Netid username to ilab-support@agilent.com

External users who are not eligible for a TAMU Netid can sign up or login using iLab credentials.

After you have an account, login at the CoreFacilities page and view all the services provided.
