The Applied Genomics Technology Center (AGTC) is a state-of-the-art facility encompassing a wide range of genomic technologies and the expertise and track record to work with research scientists and physicians. Services include DNA isolation, DNA sequencing, next generation sequencing, genotyping, RNA isolation, and expression analysis. The facility has both low throughput and high throughput technologies to accommodate investigators’ needs, e.g. expression analysis options include: Applied Biosystems TagMan assays, Illumina BeadArrays, Affymetrix GeneChips, and digital gene expression on the Illumina Genome Analyzer IIx.
