Now available at the Cancer Center Genome Core, a DNA fingerprinting/Sample ID panel from Sequenom. Good for next gen sequencing sample tracking and GWAS studies, the panel has SNPs that span both Illumina's Human Oni1-Quad v1.0 & Affy Genome-wide Human SNP Array 6.0.
The range of prices listed here will vary according to sample number. Please contact the Genome Core at email@example.com for more information.
AND we’re pleased to announce we have the following instruments currently available on a trial basis through December 2012, and possibly beyond. All are ready for projects starting in August.
Next Gen Sequencing:
Ion Torrent (Life Technologies)
Although we can help you run whatever libraries are appropriate for the instrument, we are currently focusing on Ion Ampliseq Cancer Panels (e.g. 46 critical oncogenes with 739 COSMIC mutations).
High Throughput Real Time PCR:
OpenArray Real Time PCR System (Life Technologies)
High throughput Real-Time PCR in 33nl reactions using Taqman Chemistry. For Gene Expression, SNP genotyping, full miRNA panels, targeted pathways, custom designs, and digital PCR.
SmartChip Real Time PCR System (Wafergen)
High throughput Real-Time PCR in 100 nl reactions using open format assay choice. For Gene Expression, SNP genotyping, and a variety of custom designs.
A searchable database of core facilities at all UCSF campus locations, provided by the Clinical and Translational Science Institute at UCSF, is available here.
