CTSI: Molecular Genomics
Full-service genomics resources will be provided by the UMB Genomics Core, led by Nicholas Ambulos, PhD, and the Institute for Genome Sciences (IGS), led by Claire M. Fraser, PhD. The UMB Genomics Core has been in operation for over 26 years. The facility is fully equipped and staffed to perform all scales of genotyping (Taqman, Pyrosequencing, Affymetrix, Illumina BeadXpress, Illumina GoldenGate), gene expression profiling (Affymetrix, Illumina) as well as low-throughput DNA sequence analysis (ABI). The Core has extensive experience with off the shelf products including Affymetrix miRNA arrays and DMET chips, Illumina cardio-metabochips and methylation beadchips as well as custom products. The Genomics Core Facility has supported a number of high impact publications, including those published in journals including Science , Proceeding of the National Academy of Sciences and the Journal of the American Medical Association .
