Research Infrastructure

The W. Harry Feinstone Center for Genomic Research has developed and maintains a Molecular Biology Instrumentation Core (MBIC). This core provides fee-for-service DNA sequence analysis and oligonucleotide sequence synthesis. In 2002, we have added an Affymetrix GeneChip system for high-throughput DNA microarray analysis.

The Center provides salary support for the MBIC, as well as maintenance of instrumentation service contracts. To date, the center has purchased over $400,000 of advanced molecular biology instrumentation and maintains this equipment by supporting service contracts. In addition to these center-supported facilities, the Sutter Lab and the MMCS Department have established common equipment facilities (LS519) available to MMCS faculty and other center members.

These facilities include a darkroom, as well as the following equipment: Bio Rad Molecular Imager FX (Phosphor Imager with laser upgrades), Bio Rad iCycler with optical upgrade for RealTime PCR, MilliQ water system, Ultra and high speed centrifuges and rotors, Beckman DU640 Spectrophotometer, 2 Speed-Vacuums and a gel dryer, Bio Rad Gel Documentation System with computer, and a Cary Eclipse Fluorescence Spectrophotometer.
