Table of Services

Genomics Services

Cytogenetics and Chromosome Microarray Analysis

The Cytogenetics and Chromosome Microarray Analysis Core provides classical cytogenetics and molecular cytogenetics services (e.g., mFISH), as well as high-resolution DNA copy number analysis for the detection of genomic imbalances, including chromosomal deletions and amplifications.


Expression Microarray

The Expression Microarray Core provides investigators with gene expression analysis solutions for cancer research.  The basic services of this unit include microarray experimental design, RNA sample labeling, hybridization and scanning.  


Genotyping and Real-Time PCR

The Genotyping and Real-time PCR Core provides various platforms and expertise for genome-wide and targeted DNA and RNA analyses as well as quantitative real-time PCR services.  


Laser Capture Microdissection

The LCM Core provides instrumentation and expertise needed for isolating pure cell populations from heterogeneous tissue specimens.  The purified DNA, RNA or protein from captured cells can be used for a wide range of downstream applications such as gene expression analysis, DNA sequencing, and proteomic assays.
