UTHSA Biobanking and Genome Analysis

Overview of Services

The Biobanking and Genome Analysis Core Laboratory offers services in the following three categories:  

 

BioBanking

  • Services for biological sample processing and storage
  • Isolation of nucleic acids from biological specimens
  • Quantity and quality assessment of nucleic acids (Nanodrop spectrophotometer and Agilent Bioanalyzer)
  • Epstein-Barr Virus transformation of lymphocytes to establish lymphoblastoid cell lines 

Genotyping

  • High throughput genotyping of single nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs) using Illumina Omni BeadChip arrays
  • TaqMan allelic discrimination analysis using the ABI 7900HT Sequence Detection System

Whole Genome Gene Expression

  •  Whole genome gene expression microarray analysis for human (Illumina HT12 BeadChip) and mouse (Agilent Mouse GE 8x60K microarray)
  •  Targeted gene expression analysis using the TaqMan real-time quantitative PCR method and the ABI 7900HT Sequence Detection System
  •  Access to Agilent GeneSpring analysis software
