Description

The Microarray Core Facility (MCF) has been fully operational since 2001 and providing centralized access to microarray and related technology for our research community. The MCF provides access to a variety of microarray technologies including Affymetrix GeneChip system, Illumina BeadArray system. Eppendorf DualChip platform, In-house spotted microarray and proteomic arrays. We provide a broad range of microarray products and services to our users, including whole genome gene expression and genotyping (using Affymetrix, Illumina, or other platforms), microRNA, custom DNA array printing and hybridization service, proteomic array service, sample preparation (DNA, RNA) and QC (using Aligent 2100 Biolnalyzer and NanoDrop quantification), microarray validation using Real-time PCR, and microarray data analysis using a variety of bioinformatics tools including Genespring and Ingenuity(IPA). In addition, we are planning to add NimbleGen’s array CGH and Chip-IP analysis and next generation high speed sequencing in the near future and make this new technologies available to our users. Our goal is to provide the state-of-the-art technology to our faculties with the best service and the lowest cost.
