The Office of the Vice Dean is pleased to announce
a new web tool that makes available research resources at your fingertips.
The Hopkins Core Conduit http://www.hopkinsmedicine.org/
Research/ core_facilities/index.html is a searchable database of
51 core facility service centers on campus available to all School of
Medicine researchers. The new tool has functions

Launch of New Service Center: BRB Behavioral
The Department of Psychiatry and Behavioral
Sciences is glad to announce the launching of their new service center,
the BRB Behavioral Core Facility. Effective January 1, 2011, researchers
interested in behavioral phenotyping will have access to a variety of
physiological and behavioral tests. Plans are also in place to have
a technician available to run behavioral tests at an additional cost.
Directed by Mikhail Pletnikov, MD/PhD, and coordinated by Jennifer Yocum,
MA, the facility is able to support all your needs in behavioral phenotyping.
The BRB Behavioral Core would like to thank the
Brain Sciences Institute (BSi) for their gracious financial support
for the establishment of our Core, and for their continued support.
If you have any questions about the new
facility, please contact Dr Mikhail Pletnikov at 410-502-3760 or email@example.com,
or Jennifer Yocum at 443-287-4054 or firstname.lastname@example.org
DNA Analysis Facility Services
The DNA Analysis Facility (http://daf.jhmi.edu)
would like to announce two new services.
- We are now offering Pyrosequencing on a Pyromark
Q24 machine. This service is ideal for quantitating mixed alleles
in tumor and microbial samples, for looking at methylation, either
using one of the thousands of predesigned assays or via a custom designed
assay. For more details, see the pyrosequencing page of our website.
- We also have expanded our access to oligo synthesis
companies. Our offerings now include Bioneer, IDT and Sigma-Genosys.
Bioneer and IDT both offer long oligo synthesis (up to 200 bp) and
gene synthesis at reasonable prices. All oligos can be pickup up in
our facility or delivered to your door with your regular Core Store
deliveries, all for lower prices and free shipping.
