The Estonian Centre for Genomics (ECG) combines a population-based biobank and an infrastructure for genomics studies. The ECG is a genomics hub for the Biobanking and Biomolecular Resources Research Infrastructure (BBMRI ERIC).
Sequencing, genotyping and gene expression analysis, cytogenetics , cancer research studies, metagenomics, etc – EGC Core Facility offers a wide range of services to study various species with the latest technology from Illumina.
RI research services
The Estonian Genome Centre Core Facility is dedicated to providing genotyping and sequencing services to researchers, clinicians, and others using state-of-the-art technology. In 2006, the ECG started with an Illumina BeadArray platform. Today, the core facility is equipped with Illumina’s HiSeq2500 and MiSeq for whole genome and targeted sequencing projects, and a HiScanSQ for genome-wide genotyping, methylation, and expression analyses. From the beginning of 2012, the core facility has been certified by Illumina as Illumina Certified Service Providers (CSPro) for genotyping, gene expression, and sequencing.
Access to Estonian Biobank sources
Providing access to Biobank samples, donor health details, and phenotype and genotype data, including genealogy data.
Equipment at the RI
A full software set with several modules with the specific task of collecting additional data from gene donors and to provide data for scientists in a user-friendly way.
