Established in 1998, the Princess Margaret Genomics Centre (PMGC) is dedicated to providing researchers (Ontario, Canada, and worldwide) access to a full spectrum of genomics services. The PMGC has solutions for a broad range of experimental needs: from wet-lab work to bioinformatics.
We provide several services for characterizing your RNA and DNA samples, whether they are purified raw samples or finished libraries.
The PMGC houses a suite of Illumina sequencing instruments including MiSeq, NextSeq 500 (x2), HiSeq 2500, and NovaSeq 6000. We perform library prep and sequencing services for a wide variety of assays. As for DNA microarrays, our service offerings are now limited to DNA microarrays provided by Illumina.
Samples that PMGC will accept/process:
|Assay||Cells/Tissue||RNA/DNA Samples||Sequence-ready Libraries|
|Shallow Whole Genome|
|Single Cell ATAC|
Analyze gene expression and DNA mutations at single-cell resolution with our wide range of innovative technology offerings.
Description for Spatial-Omics to be completed by Troy
High-throughput quantitative gene and protein expression technologies.
The PMGC has a team dedicated to testing and performing standard and emerging epigenomic and genome conformation assays. If you have an interest in an epigenomic assay not listed below, contact our team.
Use genome and transcriptome editing tools such as CRISPR, CRISPRi, CRISPRa, and others to interrogate gene function.
No, the PMGC performs research services only.
The PMGC is interested in participating in collaborative research projects with academic and commercial groups. We are particularly interested in collaborations which can be funded by small or large collaborative grants. A key area of focus for us is in the area of protocol and technology development. If you are interested in a collaborative project with us, please contact Troy Ketela (click name to open email).
Our shipping address is:

Samples should be shipped on dry ice. We highly recommend shipping samples on a Monday or Tuesday to provide enough time for the samples to arrive before the weekend and helping to assure the dry ice will not sublime before arrival. Please note that special paperwork is required for shipping RNA or DNA from locations outside of Canada. For the Customs documentation that you will need, please download this form. Once you send us this information, the UHN Customs Officer will generate the appropriate Customs document and send it to you via e-mail. This document must be included with the waybill on your package.
