Eun-Gyu No, Ph.D.

Service Director, Laboratory for Genome Technology

979-458-0018 | 124A Borlaug Center |

Dr. No has activities in three major areas: technology development, training, and service.Technology development includes evaluating and implementing new technologies in order to provide access for the LGT collaborators and clientele to cutting edge technology. He is investigating new marker technologies for genotyping and to develop novel deep sequencing protocols.  Training is his main approach for technology transfer. He provides informal training to users on how to operate common equipment and software, gives technical advice on a personalized basis, and conducts formal training through workshops and classroom lectures.  Services such as genotyping and sequencing are provided through the LGT under his supervision. The service also includes instrumentation. Dr. No maintains a state-of-the-art facility fully accessible to the community that includes an ABI 3130 Genetic Analyzer, a Roche 454, two Illumina GAIIs, and many other experimental and analytical instruments.
