The Duke University School of Medicine Office of Biomedical and Graduate Education (OBGE) and Precision Genomics Collaboratory awarded 7 pilot grants of $2,000 each to SOM Biomedical PhD students. The goal of these grants is to support our students in scientific and educational efforts to bolster their graduate training experiences. These awards will help further research in a broad array of topics including cancer, gut microbes, RNA and DNA sequencing, neurons and astrocytes, developing new methods.
The official list of Clarivate’s Most Highly Cited Scientists came out on November 15. Among the 30 Duke faculty to make this list, five are also faculty in the Precision Genomics Collaboratory.
Congratulations to our highly cited researchers!
The Sequencing and Genomics Technologies Core Facility is running orders for the Illumina NovaSeq X Plus.
The X Plus provides high quality short read sequences for a fraction of the cost of the Illumina NovaSeq 6000. Additionally custom read-length projects can now purchase lanes instead of full flow cells (e.g. 75 SR for miRNA-seq, single cell protocols).
The available products are listed below, with more read options available towards the end of the year.
