DNA Strand

The Genomics Research and Technology Hub (GRT Hub) at the University of California, Irvine is a core research facility. We provide a variety of services ranging from quality checking DNA/RNA to library construction and sequencing. We offer several sequencing platforms from Illumina’s MiSeq and NovaSeq to PacBio’s Sequel II System. Visit our Instruments & Services page for  more information.


The mission of the GRT Hub is to bring emerging nucleic acid technologies to UCI and provide genome-wide analysis for clients interested in gene expression, regulation of gene expression, and genome sequence and variation. We are available for consultation and look forward to supporting your research projects.


The GRT Hub was established in 1999 as a shared resource, affiliated with the Chao Family Comprehensive Cancer Center, an NCI-designated Comprehensive Cancer Center, with the goal of assisting UCI Campus and Medical Center investigators.  The GRT Hub provides CFCCC investigators with guidance and education throughout the entire experimental process, including  experimental design, data analysis and publication. The shared resource has expanded and currently provides services to numerous outside academic, non-profit institutions and commercial biotech entities.
