Facility Details

The facility provides microarray-based global analysis of gene expression in human, mice and rats using an Illumina platform. Starting with investigator RNA samples, the facility confirms RNA quality, and then performs microarray analysis as well as initial data analysis. Array data are returned to the investigator, and if desired, also passed on to the Informatics and Data Management facility for more detailed analysis. Both mRNA and miRNA profiling are available. Quantitative real-time PCR (Q-PCR) service is predominantly SYBR green-based analysis, but hybridization probe (e.g. TaqMan) approaches are supported. Starting with RNA, the facility will utilize primers from investigators, or design custom primers and perform Q-PCR. The facility provides control primers and assists with experimental design, as well as providing basic relative quantitation analysis. Q-PCR analysis in the facility can also provide gene, RNA, or viral copy number data.
