Australian Genome Research Facility (AGRF)
Australian Genome Research Facility Ltd (AGRF), a not-for-profit company, is Australia’s largest provider of genomics services and solutions. AGRF has laboratories in Brisbane, Sydney, Melbourne, Adelaide and Perth, each providing a gateway to a national network of state-of-the-art facilities, technology and expertise.
Gandel Charitable Trust Sequencing Centre
The Gandel Charitable Trust Sequencing Centre provides a Sanger Sequencing service utilising Life Technologies 3130xl Genetic Analyzers. The Centre is based at the Monash Institute for Medical Research (MIMR) in Clayton, Victoria but provides services research Institutes throughout Australia providing long read sequence data and comprehensive client support. The Sanger Sequencing service is NATA accredited and complies with ISO 15189:2007.
ACRF Centre for Cancer Genomic Medicine
The Centre is based at the Monash Institute for Medical Research (MIMR) in Melbourne and provides a Next-Generation Sequencing (NGS) service utilising the latest Illumina HiSeq 1500 and Ion Torrent systems. Services include whole or targeted genome, whole transcriptome, small RNA sequencing, gene expression profiling, ChIP-Seq or methylation analysis.
ACRF Centre for Cancer Biology
The facility provides researchers access to a number of technologies that include microarrays (through the Adelaide Microarray Centre), Sanger Sequencing, Next-Generation Sequencing, Sequenom MassArrays, Fluidigm BioMark, as well as, other validation methods and sample preparation robotics.
Ramaciotti Centre for Genomics UNSW
The Ramaciotti Centre for Genomics core facility is located at the University of New South Wales (UNSW). Its mission is to deliver internationally competitive genomic services to the Australian research community. This facility provides equipment and expertise to assist researchers in the use of microarrays, sequencing and high-throughput technology.
Melbourne Translational Genomics Platform
The Melbourne Translational Genomics Platform (MTGP) is based at the University of Melbourne (Department of Pathology) makes genetic and genomic sequencing capabilities more readily accessible to researchers, clinicians and students across the precinct. Expanding the vision of the Centre for Translational Pathology (CTP). Illumina HiSeq2500, MiSeq.
Victorian Centre for Functional Genomics (VCFG)
The Victorian Centre for Functional Genomics (VCFG) at Peter MacCallum Cancer Centre (PMCC), Melbourne, offers biomedical researchers Australia-wide the ability to perform genome-wide or custom boutique screens using multiple platforms: short hairpin RNA (shRNA), small interfering RNA (siRNA), micro RNA (miRNA) and long non-coding RNA (lncRNA). The VCFG was initially supported by seed funding of $150,000 from AGTA.
Auckland Genomics, based at the University of Auckland, provides access to next-generation library making and sequencing (Illumina MiSeq, NextSeq, Chromium 10x), as well as gene expression technologies using several platforms (Affymetrix GeneChip, NanoString)
Kinghorn Centre for Clinical Genomics (KCCG)
The KCCG (Gravan Institute, Sydney) was established to further the use of genomic information in patient care. KCCG is the only Centre is Australasia to have the Illumina HiSeqX Ten system; 10x Illumina HiSeq instruments capable (together) of sequencing 18,000 whole human genomes at minimum 30x coverage. Access is open to Australian researchers. To utilise this resource please see specific contact details in the link above.
Australasian Biospecimen Network
The Australasian Biospecimen Network – Oncology (ABN-Oncology) is a national network of biobanks established to collect, process and disseminate biospecimens for cancer research, ranging from basic laboratory projects through to clinical trials. ABN-Oncology also serves to provide a forum to address technical, legal/ethical, and managerial issues relevant to human biospecimen repositories within Australasia.
Centre for Biodiversity Analysis
The Centre for Biodiversity Analysis (CBA) is a collaboration between The Australian National University (ANU) and the Commonwealth Scientific & Industrial Research Organisation (CSIRO) to exploit these new and emerging capabilities in the discovery, understanding and conservation of Australia’s unique biodiversity.
PMCC Molecular Genomics Facility
The molecular genomics facility at Peter Mac operates three major platforms; Illumina HiSeq 2500 (next-generation sequencer), Nanostring nCounter Analysis System (digital analyser) and Affymetrix GeneChip System (microarray). Use of the facility is available to external users by fee-for-service agreement, subject to availability.
ACRF Biomolecular Resource Facility
CRF Biomolecular Resource Facility is the core facility at the Australian National University providing researchers with access to state of the art techniques for molecular and genetic based studies. We provide service and project consultancy for our clients on a number of Next-Generation Sequencing platforms, Sanger sequencing and Realtime PCR.
