The Genomics Core Facility performs differential expression analysis experiments using microarrays. Customers provide the facility with high-quality total RNA, and the facility performs sample labeling, microarray hybridization, scanning, and data acquisition. Raw data is provided to customers for analysis, as the core does not provide data analysis services. The core facility currently supports the use of the Affymetrix and NimbleGen commercial microarray platforms, and provides guidance in choosing the platform that best fits customers' projects.
The Genomics Core Facility has the instrumentation to perform microarray applications involving DNA such as CGH, SNP analysis, and ChIP-chip, but does not routinely perform these assays. Please inquire if you have an interest in these applications, and we will determine if we can support your needs.
