Welcome to the Functional Genomics Core

The Functional Genomics Core performs expression profiling, SNP genotyping and copy number microarray (Thermo Fisher) services.

We currently have Beckman Coulter’s Biomek® FXP Target Prep Express robot and the GeneTitan Instrument from Affymetrix which allow the processing of hundreds of microarray samples in a week, and processing of high throughput expression peg arrays and Axiom genotyping high throughput peg arrays.
Also, we have the Affymetrix GeneChip® Scanner 3000 7G Plus Targeted Genotyping System in the Core. It has the ability to scan all research arrays manufactured by Affymetrix including the high density expression arrays which place an entire genome on one GeneChip®. This equipment includes 2 Fluidics Station 450s and the GeneChip® Hybidization Oven 640.
