Transcriptomic studies attempt to measure gene expression as a way to catalog the innerworkings of genetic regulation via RNA. This can be done on a number of levels from a handful of gene targets to a genome-wide profile. The RTSF Genomics Core offers several services for investigators looking to utilize gene expression for their research. Our range of applications includes solutions for quantifying gene expression levels in nearly any species regardless of sample size. Services include Next Generation Sequencing using Illumina instruments, qPCR using the QuantStudio 7 Flex, very high-throughput RT-qPCR using the WaferGen/TakaraBio SmartChip RT-qPCR system (up to 5,184 qPCR reactions at one time), and gene expression using NanoString's nCounter system.
