The DNA Microarray and Sequencing Core Facility, is an integral component of the Department of Genetics, Cell Biology and Anatomy at the University of Nebraska Medical Center. The core is a full-service microarray and sequencing facility and performs all aspects of microarray experimentation. These procedures include DNA microarray slide fabrication, labeling of RNA, hybridization of samples as well as data analysis. The facility is currently providing the necessary resources for academic investigators throughout the state to utilize DNA microarray technology in their respective research projects. The facility functions as a subsidized fee-for-service facility. In addition, the sequencing facility houses a next generation DNA sequencer. The costs to the users are only those necessary to recover the cost of slide fabrication and sample processing.
