The Genomics and Cell Characterization Core Facility (GC3F) supports scientific research at the University of Oregon by making a broad array of high end specialized instrumentation accessible to UO researchers for genomics & flow cytometry applications. We also offer in-house sequencing sample prep services, for both internal and external users.  

The services provided by the GC3F are described in the tabs above.

Illumina MiSeq Sequencing




We are excited to now offer sequencing on the Illumina MiSeq system! This is a benchtop instrument designed for lower-output sequencing applications such as amplicons (targeted resequencing), small genomes, miRNA & small RNA, and targeted gene expression profiling.

In addition to offering both single read (SR) and paired end (PE) read types, it has the longest read length available on any Illumina instrument and can be operated at 4 different modes to help you narrow in on the ideal configuration for your experiment:

  • v3 mode:  Up to 25M reads at max read length of 300bp
  • v2 mode:  Up to 15M reads at max read length of 250bp
  • Micro mode:  Up to 4M reads at max read length of 150bp
  • Nano mode:  Up to 1M reads at max read length of 250bp

Please submit 25 µL minimum volume of your MiSeq libraries at 4 nM minimum concentration. For further details on sample submission, contact Doug Turnbull (dturnbul@uoregon.edu).
