Upcoming Webinar on UMGC Updates

The University of Minnesota Genomics Center (UMGC) invites you to a webinar to hear Dr. Kenny Beckman, Director of the UMGC, present on new technologies and services, new rates, and organizational changes to the UMGC.

Presentation topics include:

  • Introduction of our two-tier services model with both standard (low-cost) and expedited (fast turnaround) options, to ensure that users with a need for more rapid turnaround time have that option. 
  • Details on our on rate increases and discuss the possibility of eliminating or outsourcing some legacy services as part of a transition to a more NGS-centric focus. 
  • Discussion of spatial genomics platforms, our Illumina NextSeq 2000 instrument, and new tools for single-cell genomics. 
  • Overview of more frequent training and education seminars and user groups meetings in the coming year. 
  • Details on our recent move of about 20 of our staff and most of our external services to a facility east of the Twin Cities, in Oakdale, MN. 
  • Lastly, we will encourage – and be happy to answer – questions from attendees.
