Description

The Genomics & Epigenomics Shared Resource (GESR) provides services for various high throughput experiments including gene expression profiling,  next-generation sequencing, SNP genotyping, CNV analysis, DNA methylation, microRNA expression profiling, siRNA screening, DNA/RNA isolation, RNA quality assessment, DNA plating and assay preparation, Sanger sequencing, and fragment analysis. GESR uses state-of-the-art instruments and assays to provide these services. These include Affymetrix Microarray System, Agilent Microarray System, Applied Biosystems TaqMan assays, Illumina BeadXpress, Qiagen PyromarkMD, Qiagen Qiacube, Agilent Bioanalyzer, Beckman Multimek NXP Robotic Liquid Handling System, and Applied Biosystems Sequence Analyzer. In addition, GESR houses several user-operated specialized instruments for which the shared resource personnel provide technical support and training. Find out more about the GESR Biacore Services.
