VA/VMRF Microarray & NGS Core

Services we provide:


Roche 454 Sequencing
Combination of long reads, exceptional accuracy, and high throughput sequencing. GS Data Analysis software for de novo assembly, reference mapping, and amplicon variant analysis. Applications include whole genome sequencing,  targeted resequencing, metagenomics, and transcriptome sequencing.

Fluidigm Access Array System
Parallel amplification of 48 targets from 48 samples, in effect generating 2304 sequencing-ready bar-coded amplicons, in just a few hours.

Affymetrix Microarrays
RNA expression profiling in multiple prokaryotic and eukaryotic species. DNA genetic analyses such as single-nucleotide polymorphism (SNP) assays, resequencing, loss-of-heterozygosity, comparative genomic hybridization, whole genome transcription factor localization, whole genome location analysis by ChIP-on-chip, promoter arrays and mitochondrial mutation detection.

Illumina BeadChips
The Direct Hybridization Assay offers the highest level of multiplexing for whole-genome expression profiling available. Illumina's whole-genome expression arrays produce high-quality data for large gene expression studies, efficiently and economically.

Agilent Microarrays
Agilent 1,000,000-feature microarrays represent a four-fold increase in density. Vast genomic coverage lets researchers use the superior performance of Agilent arrays in a growing number of high-resolution genomic applications. SurePrint technology allows as many as 8 arrays to reside on a single slide, allowing experiments to range from a genome-wide view to more focused studies.

Agilent 2100 Bioanalyzer / NanoDrop
Quality control of submitted samples and labeled probes.
