Overview

The Gene Expression & Genotyping core provides state-of-the-art technical services and consultation on Single Cell RNA-Seq, RNA-Seq, 16s metagenomics and Affymetrix gene expression arrays. High-throughput RNA-seq libraries, 16s libraries and sequencing capture libraries can be done by using the 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. The Genotyping services include fragment analysis using AB3730 (96 capillary technology), development of microsatellite libraries using Illumina sequence data, and genotyping using mouse tails or ear punches. These up-to-date gene expression and genotyping analysis methods allow scientists to be on the cutting edge of research.

Excessive Heat Stroke Induces Long‐term Physiological Changes That are Linked to Altered Epigenetic Profiles Excessive Heat Stroke Induces Long‐term Physiological Changes That are Linked to Altered Epigenetic Profiles
Excessive Heat Stroke Induces Long‐term Physiological Changes That are Linked to Altered Epigenetic Profiles
Epigenetics is the study of heritable phenotypic change that involves chemical modifications to the DNA genome sequence or associated DNA-binding proteins. These specific alterations affect how cells turn genes off or on. Exertional heat stroke (EHS) can cause long-term negative effects on health. Although epigenetic “reprogramming” of the genome is involved in the response to heat acclimation, it is not known whether the long-term effects of EHS are mediated by epigenetic reprogramming. In a st...

Lots of Samples, Little Time? Try Protein Simple Wes
Unlike traditional western blots, the Protein Simple Wes at ICBR Monoclonal Antibody runs up to 25 samples in 3 hours flat and gives you quantitative, size-based data including total protein. With a long list of applications, including cancer, SARS-CoV-2, cell & gene therapy, targeted degradation and more, there is no shortage of opportunities. The same Protein Simple Wes appeared in a recent publication featured in Nature Communications from Dr. Shinichi Someya’s research group in the Depar...

Are BPA Alternatives Safer? New Research Takes a Look
New research conducted at the University of Florida shows that a bisphenol A (BPA) alternative for making plastics, bisphenol S (BPS), could come with its own set of health risks. After past studies revealed the widely used BPA was contaminating food and water supplies, consumers quickly searched for alternatives. Market demand for BPA-free products led to the emergence of BPS as a commonly used bisphenol analog in plastic products. The UF | ICBR Proteomics and Mass Spectrometry (PM) core contri...
