About us
We provide genomics consultation and services to assist UCSF researchers in carrying out projects utilizing next generation sequencing approaches, including multiple forms of library preparation and bioinformatic analysis.

Spatial Transcriptomics
We are excited to announce we now support multiple spatial transcriptomics approaches, including the 10x Genomics Visium and Xenium platforms. Additional methodologies are on their way as well.

The UCSF Genomics CoLab facilitates the use of state of the art, high-throughput genomic technologies for the research community. Our services are available to all UCSF investigators and we are happy to discuss collaborations with interested investigators at other institutions. We focus on functional genomics applications, especially bulk RNA profiling (RNA-Seq and small RNA-Seq), single cell transcriptomics methods and epigenomic methods (ATAC-seq). We can also provide bioinformatic analysis for other types of sequencing, including single cell RNA-seq.

We are a multidisciplinary group that interacts closely with investigators and offers support for all phases of each study, including experimental design, sample preparation, quality control, and data analysis.  We can work through both a recharge mechanism, a fee-for-service system in which investigators provide samples and we handle sample processing, quality control, and standard data analysis, and collaborative arrangements.
