The Quantitative PCR core provides researchers access to instruments which support SYBR® or TaqMan™ reagents allowing absolute, relative, relative standard or comparative Ct quantification. Applications include quantitative gene expression analysis, pathogen detection/quantification, allelic discrimination (SNP detection), and mutation screening. The core provides self service training and service as well as technician-assisted service to researchers and lab staff members.
To contact Quantitative PCR, e-mail ICBR-qPCR@ad.ufl.edu.
The Sanger Sequencing core provides capillary-based automated DNA sequencing. One-lane sequencing processes, which use four-dye fluorescent labeling methods and a real-time scanning detector, are used. The sequencers automatically perform the electrophoresis, call the bases, and archive the data. Customers are alerted when sample runs are complete and data are available for download.
