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. Currently, the three main techniques to study gene expression are RT-qPCR, microarrays and NGS. The RTSF Genomics Core provides each as an option 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. Platforms available for expression analysis include Affymetrix, Agilent and Illumina, both NGS and expression arrays.
Additionally, for those working on a smaller scale, the RTSF Genomics Core offers targeted expression services as an option to validate target genes from sequencing or array based experiments. Samples are processed using the ABI 7900 HT RT-PCR system.
