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, DragonFly 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

Big Changes for ICBR Electron Microscopy Core in 2023
We are excited to announce that our EM core is going to be relocated entirely in CGRC. The move should not only offer our users additional convenience with a singular location and increased proximity to our peer cores, but the renovation will provide our users with a revamped lab space that will expand the capabilities and offerings of our EM team. We are very excited about the next steps, but there is still a lot of work left to do. EM is currently doing their best to facilitate this move while...

Study uncovers differences in saliva bacteria of students with recent suicidal thoughts Samantha Murray A new University of Florida study has found that bacteria in the saliva of college students who reported recent thoughts of suicide differed in significant ways from those found in students who had not experienced recent suicidal thinking. While there is a growing body of research on mental health and the human microbiome, this is the first study to look at bacterial differences in the sa...

Ant queens control insulin to boost lifespan, reproduction Eric Hamilton In most of the animal world, there’s a sad trade-off to make: The more babies you have, the shorter you live. But ants buck the system. The queens — the only individuals in a nest that reproduce — also live five, 10, up to 30 times longer than their genetically identical worker sisters. How do they pull off what the rest of animalkind cannot? A new study from University of Florida biologist Hua Yan and his collea...
