The Analytical and Translational Genomics (ATG) Shared Resource (formerly Keck-UNM Genomics Resource, KUGR) provides access to next generation sequencing assays, microarrays, and other genomics technologies coupled with expert bioinformatics analysis. ATG is available for use by all faculty at UNM and its affiliates, and all investigators are encouraged to contact ATG to find out how we can help with their research.

New Developments:

• ATG specializes in RNA-seq assays utilizing the Ion Proton sequencer.

• ATG now offers a variety of next-generation sequencing assays that utilize the Ion Proton S5/XL instruments.

ATG is primarily a provider of next-generation sequencing services using the Ion Proton S5/XL instruments. Major services include:

List of Services:

• RNA-seq for differential gene expression, analysis of alternative RNA splicing or detection of fusion transcripts or chromosomal translocations.

• Targeted sequencing of large gene panels for detecting driver mutations or known disease-causing variants.

• Exome or low-pass whole genome sequencing for detecting germline (inherited) mutations or copy number variant (CNV) detection (e.g. LOH).

• Epigenetics assays such as ChIP-seq, MeDIP-seq.

• Other assays may also be available, please contact us for details.

ATG can provide data management and bioinformatics analysis for the data we generate and can work with the Bioinformatics Shared Resource for complex analysis scenarios.

Please acknowledge ATG in your publications!
