Overview

The Biomedical Sequencing Facility (BSF) is part of the joint genomics core facility of the Medical University of Vienna and the CeMM Research Center for Molecular Medicine of the Austrian Academy of Sciences. The BSF is Austria’s first technology platform dedicated to next-generation sequencing in biomedicine and expected to play a catalyzing role for the development of genomic medicine in Vienna and Austria.

Services

  • Research support and consulting for a broad range of applications of next-generation sequencing in biomedicine
  • Sequencing service using HiSeq 3000/4000, HiSeq 2000, and MiSeq instruments of the Illumina platform (currently the preferred technology for many applications)
  • Advice and contacts for other sequencing technologies (e.g. Ion Torrent/Proton, Illumina NextSeq, Pacific Biosciences, Oxford Nanopore, Complete Genomics, Roche 454)
  • Automatized library preparation services (RNA-seq, exome-seq, whole genome sequencing)
  • Help and advice with additional protocols (e.g., ChIP-seq, DNA methylation, open chromatin, targeted validation sequencing, etc.)
  • Local point of contact for commercial providers of next-generation sequencing technology
  • Bioinformatic data processing, analysis and assistance with data interpretation

BSF Team

The BSF is run as a collaborative effort of researchers at the CeMM Research Center of Molecular Medicine of the Austrian Academy of Sciences and at the Medical University of Vienna. In addition to the currently participating research groups listed below, the BSF welcomes the contribution of other research groups who work on next-generation sequencing in a biomedical context. Suggestions or applications for becoming part of the BSF team should be addressed to the facility coordinator.
