Genomics, Bioinformatics and Single Cell Analysis Core

Operation Manager: Dr. Kaeling TAN


The Genomics, Bioinformatics & Single Cell Analysis Core is equipped with state-of-the-art equipment that provides cutting-edge technologies and high-quality technical support in genomics research and bioinformatics analysis. The core offers a platform with advanced technologies such as genome sequencing, gene expression analysis, single cell isolation and gene library construction and project-specific data analysis to  understand gene functions related to diseases (e.g. cancer, infectious diseases, etc.), reproduction, and development and beyond. Through these researches, the core ultimately aims to foster the development of new and innovative methods for disease prevention, diagnosis and treatment.


  • providing cutting-edge technologies for gene expression and genomics research such as single cell isolation, library construction and next-generation sequencing, etc.
  • providing professional bioinformatics support on the analysis and interpretation of genomics data; and
  • fostering development of innovative applications in genomics and bioinformatics.
