IGC Mission

Provide a total solution of genomics research from consultancy to experiments to data analysis. Our goal is to get a project from “sample to figure.”

Services Provided:

  1. Sequencing
    1. Genome (WGS, exon, mutation detection, etc.)
    2. Transcriptome
    3. Epigenome (cut & run, cut & tag)
    4. Amplicon
  2. Single Cell Genomics & RNA-Seq
