The Genomics Resource Center offers comprehensive services and state-of-the-art instruments to support genomics research. The approximately 3000 sq. ft. center houses all three major microarray platforms (Affymetrix, Agilent, and Illumina). two Illumina HiSeq 2000 next- generation DNA sequencers, two realtime PCR systems (ABI 7900 HT and Roche LightCycler), and several accessory instruments for sample quantity and quality validation. The center offers full support for whole genome gene expression and SNP genotyping analysis on microarrays, including sample preparation, array hybridization and processing, and data analysis.
For the next-generation DNA sequencing service on Illumina HiSeq 2000, users can either provide
their own libraries or use the library preparation service for genomic DNA-seq and
RNA-seq. The center performs initial sequencing data analysis for all users, and can assist with
The center is staffed by six full time personnel and is directed by Connie Zhao, Ph.D. Dr. Zhao
received her PhD in molecular genetics from Albert Einstein College of Medicine and did
postdoctoral studies with Jeff Friedman at The Rockefeller University. She has led the center since 2003. In her role as the director of the GRC, Dr. Zhao has been very successful in implementing new technologies, adding SNP genotyping, micro RNA profiling, and next- generation DNA sequencing platforms. She is an active participant in initiatives related to genomics through AMDeC, the New York Genome Center, and the American Society of Human Genetics.
