Comprehensive genomics services for research scientists and clinicians

The Integrated Genomics Laboratory, or IGL, is home to shared technology resources and support services for structural and functional genomics studies at OHSU.  The IGL consists of three service centers:

Under the IGL structure, core leadership and staff are able to provide efficient, coordinated support to OHSU investigators from nucleic acid extraction to data generation and - with designated institutional support – to invest time in strategic resource development and a robust infrastructure.

The Integrated Genomics Lab is located on the 5th floor of Richard Jones Hall on OHSU's Marquam Hill campus.

Investigators can enter this workflow at any stage for consultation, sample input, extraction, quality analysis, sample preparation, genomic assays, and data preparation and quality control (shown above).

News and upcoming events

September 20, 2023: Single-cell RNAsequencing: From START to FINISH

Are you thinking about performing a single-cell RNA Sequencing experiment? This symposium on Wednesday September 20th, from 9:00 AM to 4:00 PM, will feature sessions on multiple aspects of a single-cell RNA sequencing experiment including experimental design, experiment day, and bioinformatic analysis. Single-cell RNA sequencing product vendors will present on topics that include selecting the best single-cell RNA sequencing experimental approach for your experimental question, tips on sample preparation, and bioinformatic solutions. Finally, multiple investigators from OHSU will share about their successes with single-cell RNA sequencing.
