DNA Microarray Core

The Microarray Core Facility (MCF) provides 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 (Affymetrix, Illumina, and other platforms available),
  • 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
  • Microarray data analysis using a variety of bioinformatics tools including GeneSpring and Ingenuity (IPA).

We plan to add NimbleGen’s array CGH and Chip-IP analysis and next generation high speed sequencing in the near future.

Our goal is to provide the state-of-the-art technology to our faculties with the best service and the lowest cost.
