Genomic and RNA Profiling Core

Genomic and RNA Profiling Core

The Genomic and RNA Profiling Core or GARP (formerly the Microarray Core Facility) provides researchers access to state-of-the-art molecular profiling technology and services, including:

  • Microarray technology platforms (Affymetrix, Agilent, Taqman Low Density Arrays and SuperArray)
  • Illumina Next Gen Sequencing (HiSeq 2000, HiSeq 2500, and MiSeq Benchtop Sequencer)
  • NanoString Technology and nCounter Analysis System
  • qPCR (Gene Expression, miRNA, and Genotyping)
  • Sample Quality Control
  • Comprehensive Data Analysis

We provide a secure web-based online environment for service requests, sample tracking, data management and billing in the form of MAID, our award-winning microarray information database.
