Professor Brendan Loftus directs the UCD Conway Genomics Core, which has a range of facilities for next-generation sequencing, real-time PCR and microarray analysis as well as offering custom bioinformatics analysis. The Genomics Core has been offering genomics solutions to academic and commercial customers for more than 10 years in a customisable range of services for each stage of the research pathway, from experimental design and strategy to final publication.

These core technologies have been leveraged in a wide range of large human disease studies; on a variety of microbial pathogens either to measure response or following an outbreak; and even on ancient DNA extracted from fossil specimens.
