Our core facility currently operates with array platforms from Illumina and Agilent Technologies, and is equipped with Illumina iScan and Agilent upgraded scanner for high-density array image acquisition. Array services being offered include genome-wide gene and microRNA expression, DNA methylation, copy number variation (CNV), single nucleotide polymorphism (SNP) and ChIP-on-chip analysis. We have adopted working protocols to carry out above analyses with different sample types such as clinical specimens, sorted cells or paraffin-embedded tissue blocks.
Our services also include sample preparation, sample quality assessment and experimental design consultation. Preliminary data analysis and help in using software for data analysis are offered upon request.
