CORE OVERVIEW

Welcome to UF ICBR Gene Expression and Genotyping Core (GE). Our up-to-date gene expression and genotyping analysis methods allow scientists to be on the cutting edge of research. Our high-quality data can help researchers for their grant applications and scientific paper publications.

The Gene Expression & Genotyping core provides state-of-the-art technical services and consultation on Single Cell RNA-Seq, 10x Visium Spatial Gene Expression, Covid-seq, RNA-Seq, 16s metagenomics and ThemoFisher Axiom Genotyping arrays using Beckman Biomek Liquid Handling Automation instrument. High-throughput RNA-seq libraries, 16s libraries and sequencing capture libraries can be done by using the SPT Labtech nanoliter pipetting instrument Mosquito, DrogenFly and Agilent Bravo robot. QuantiGene RNA Assays measure up to 80 gene targets directly with degraded and cross-linked RNA in FFPE tissues and blood, with no RNA purification required. The BioRad QX200 AutoDG Droplet Digital PCR System provides absolute quantification of target DNA or RNA molecules with greater precision and sensitivity than qPCR, the sensitivity off ddPCR System can facilitate expanded analysis of single cells.

To help researchers at every aspect, GE also provides a variety of basic molecular biology services such as DNA isolations, PCR reactions, and PCR purifications for sequencing. High quality of DNA and RNA are the key for reliable data; therefore, DNA and RNA quality assessment services are offered using an Agilent Bioanalyzer and TapeStation instrument at GE.

The walkup service for DNA RNA extraction with QIAcube is available at GE as well. 

GE also offer CRISPR services, for more information, please contact us at GeneExpression@ad.ufl.edu

Plants can grow in Moon dirt — here’s why knowing that is so important The Hill Anna-Lisa Paul and Robert Ferl Humans are once again headed to the Moon. This return to the Moon means we will, for the first time, witness humans not only visiting, but living and working on the Moon. We will witness our civilization literally moving off the surface of the Earth. The lunar landings of 1969 through 1972 were short stays. The demands of getting to and returning from the Moon with the technology of tha...

Sea turtle conservation gets boost from new DNA detection method UF News Natalie van Hoose DNA “fingerprints” left behind by sea turtles offer scientists a simple, powerful way of tracking the health and whereabouts of these endangered animals, a key step forward in their conservation. A study led by University of Florida researchers is the first to sequence environmental DNA, or eDNA, from sea turtles — genetic material shed as they travel over beaches and in water. The research project is also...

A first: Scientists grow plants in soil from the Moon from UF/IFAS by Samantha Murray Scientists have grown plants in soil from the Moon, a first in human history and a milestone in lunar and space exploration. In a new paper published in the journal “Communications Biology,” University of Florida researchers showed that plants can successfully sprout and grow in lunar soil. Their study also investigated how plants respond biologically to the Moon’s soil, also known as lunar regolith, which is r...
