The HudsonAlpha Genome Sequencing Center is one of the few centers in the world performing original sequencing of plants and animals. The non-profit center has generated and publicly released reference genomes for more than 180 plants. Reference genomes serve as a point of comparison for future study and lay the foundation for downstream functional studies for the improvement and production of domesticated crops. In the cases of crop species such as sorghum, soybean, cotton, switchgrass and millet, these genomic references form the basis for genomics-enabled crop breeding to increase yields.
Sequencing the human genome for research applications
The center has historically specialized in applying genomic techniques to understand plant genomes in an effort to improve crops for use as food, fuel and fiber. However, the center is now leveraging the ever-advancing sequencing technologies to generate high-quality human genome sequences and assemblies. The addition of human sequencing expertise to their arsenal makes the HudsonAlpha Genome Sequencing Center a well-rounded genomic sequencing center that is here to help meet your research sequencing needs.
The HudsonAlpha Genomic Sequencing Center’s vision is to provide high-quality whole genome sequencing, assembly and analysis services to researchers interested in incorporating genomics into their research.
The mission of the HudsonAlpha Genomic Sequencing Center is to serve as a resource and valued collaborator for researchers in the genomics and genetics field by:
- Offering personalized, high-quality whole genome sequencing, assembly and analysis
- Providing expert genomic resources
- Helping researchers apply genomics to their research
- Consulting with researchers to help plan appropriate experiments and sequencing projects
