Genome Assembly & Analysis

The Department of Pathology and Microbiology at the University of Nebraska Medical Center (UNMC) is committed to providing high quality DNA or RNA sequencing, genome assembly, analysis, and/or annotation services to biomedical researchers, clinicians, and the community. The invaluable information provided by these services can be used for diagnostic purposes, as well as for translational, mechanistic or basic research. Steven Hinrichs, M.D., and Marilynn Larson, Ph.D., lead the Genome Assembly & Analysis (GA&A) team that brings this cutting edge technology to UNMC.


Our particular specialty is in the assembly, annotation, and analysis of bacterial genomes from a variety of platforms. These services are provided by our bioinformatic experts and collaborators at the University of Nebraska.

Genome Formatting

Formatting using various genetic analysis tools. Genomic analysis tools available include (i) de novo alignment and assembly of contigs or scaffolds and optical restriction endonuclease mapping for genome completion, (ii) identification and annotation of open reading frames, gene clusters, and regulatory components, and (iii) comparative assessment of polymorphisms, genome content, and predicted proteome.
