The Genomics Shared Resource serves as a hub for consultation and scientific interactions relating to nucleic acid-based methods and provides expertise and support to insure the best possible use of emerging nucleic-acid technologies. The Facility specializes in coding and non-coding gene RNA expression and SNP analyses on micro-array and sequencing platforms. In addition, the Facility supports whole genome and exon sequencing, functional genomics studies by NGS, promoter methylation arrays, and routine DNA capillary sequencing. Expert consultation for experimental design and custom services is provided.
This facility is supported in part by an NCI Cancer Center Support Grant and equipment grants from the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania, The Pew Charitable Trusts and the National Cancer Institute.
