The Hopkins Core Conduit

The Hopkins Core Conduit has recently been updated with the most current Core information. Check it out at: http://www.hopkinsmedicine.org/Research/

The Genetic Resources Core Facility (GRCF)

GRCF DNA Analysis Facility is pleased to announce two new developments:

  1. Applied Biosystems/Life Technologies Taqman Assays can now be ordered using a tool on our website. The tool allows you to search for assays and then creates a shopping cart which is emailed to us for ordering. You receive a small discount from list price and free shipping.
  2. We now have a portal for ordering oligos from Eurofins MWG Operon. This portal offers discounted pricing and free shipping.

For more information, see our website: http://daf.jhmi.edu

The GRCF Fragment Analysis Facility

Don't get lost searching for the source of cell line contamination! The Genetic Resources Core Facility offers a DNA biochip, MycoDtectTM (Greiner Bio-One) for a species-specific identification or the 9 most prevalent mycoplasma species causing contamination issues in Cell Culture.

GRCF High Throughput Sequencing Center

The GRCF High Throughput Sequencing Facility is now offering whole exome sequencing and analysis for $1,350 per sample. Our fully automated pipeline includes rigorous QC, exome array genotyping for concordance/sensitivity, variant calling, and annotation against most publicly available datasets. Using Agilent's v4 Whole Exome reagents, we guarantee 90% coverage of captured regions at 8x or greater, (ie. sufficient to call variants). Mean depth is a poor metric for capture, but we average >80x.
