Reference Genome Resource Center

The Reference Genome Resource Center (RGRC) at the Rockefeller University is a Resource Center specializing in high-molecular weight DNA and long-read genomic technologies.

The RGRC is one of the three main sequencing hubs of an international collaboration known as the Vertebrate Genomes Project (VGP). The VGP aims to produce near error-free, high-quality, phased, chromosome-level, annotated, reference genome assemblies of all extant 66,000 vertebrate species.

The RGRC experience and technical capability in long-reads are available to Rockefeller and external academic users.

We offer the following services:

  • PacBio sequencing
  • Bionano optical mapping
