The RNA Sequencing Core (RSC) is part of the Center for Reproductive Genomics and the Department of Biomedical Sciences in the College of Veterinary Medicine at Cornell University.

The RSC offers full-service RNAseq and small-RNA seq packages which include library preparation, sequencing, and data analysis. RNAseq library options include directional (stranded) or standard libraries for the Illumina TruSeq system, using either total RNA or rRNA-subtracted material as input. Standard analyses includes preprocessing/QC, mapping, and differential expression analysis. More details are available on the ‘Services & Pricing‘ page.

The RSC coordinates closely with, but is independent from the Institute of Biotechnology’s Biotechnology Resource Center (BRC). The RSC often uses BRC Genomics Facility and Bioinformatics Facility services including Illumina sequencing and high performance computing. For RSC projects that use BRC services, the BRC Terms and Policies apply.

The RSC is supported in part by the NICHD’s National Centers for Translational Research in Reproduction and Infertility (NCTRI) Program. Additional support from the Dean and several Department Chairs of the College of Veterinary Medicine provides a generous subsidy for CVM labs. RSC pricing for Cornell labs also reflects Cornell institutional support of BRC services provided through the Office of the Vice Provost for Research.
