AS OF MONDAY 6/22/2020:
THE ACCESS POLICIES FOR GC3F DURING UO RECOVERY STAGE 1 HAVE BEEN UPDATED.
PLEASE CAREFULLY READ OUR NEW POLICIES HERE!
These policies are also posted in multiple locations in the lab.
Notably, we have disabed the "Facility Access" calendar in iLab
and are instead managing occupancy using 3 new "VACANCY" signs on our lab door.
All other existing GC3F policies
(regarding PPE, instrument disinfection, & social distancing)
remain in effect!
COVID-19 Operational Status update:
Can GC3F accept completed Illumina libraires for sequencing? YES
Please contact Jeff Bishop with questions: firstname.lastname@example.org
Can GC3F accept completed PacBio libraires for sequencing? YES
Please contact Maggie Weitzman with questions: email@example.com
Can GC3F accept raw DNA, RNA, or tissue for library prep? YES
GC3F has established a workflow that will allow us to continue to provide Illumina and PacBio sequencing data for critical research projects during the COVID-19 pandemic. We are able to receive samples, perform our standard QC/quantification procedures, and load our sequencers with only one staff member present in the lab at a time to ensure thorough social distancing.
Completed Illumina and PacBio libraries can be submitted as normal, and we should be able to process them with a small amount of additional lead time (1-2 extra days). We are now also accepting material for Illumina and PacBio sample prep.
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.
