Transcriptional Regulation & Expression Facility

About Us :

The Transcriptional Regulation & Expression (TREx) Facility offers end-to-end genomics profiling services. Our RNAseq , small-RNA sequencing, and ATACseq packages include library preparation, sequencing, and standard data analysis. RNAseq library options include directional (stranded) or standard libraries, with pre-enrichment options including polyA+ selection and rRNA depletion (HMR, plants and/or bacteria). Standard analyses includes preprocessing/QC, mapping, and differential expression analysis. More details are available on the Services & Pricing page.

We encourage researchers to contact us early about new projects, as we can offer guidance on experimental design and sample quality and input requirements. Information about how to contact us or make a virtual appointment is listed below. We also provide a variety of protocols, guides, and links on the Resources page.
