The Genomics Core Facility is a shared institutional resource providing KI investigators with integrated facilities for microarray hybridization, scanning, processing and image analysis as well as microarray validation tools including RNA quality assessment and real time PCR. In addition, the Genomics Core Facility now supports next-generation sequencing sample preparation as well as additional genomic technologies.
Access is available to all members of the MIT community, to the extent permitted by available capacity. In recognition of funding support, priority access is given to members of the Core’s sponsoring entities (Koch Institute, MIT Biology, MIT Biological Engineering and MIT Center for Environmental Health Science) and NCI-funded research projects. In special circumstances, access may be available to non-MIT users (details available on request from the Facility Director, Stuart Levine).
For additional information on high throughput screening and walk-up liquid handling, plate reader and high content microscopy capabilities, visit the Genomics: High Throughput Screening Facility website.
The Genomics Core is supported in part by funding provided to the Koch Institute from a National Cancer Institute Cancer Center Support Grant.
