The Boston University Microarray & Sequencing Resource provides in-house analysis of global gene expression and is available to all researchers at Boston University. We are located on the 6th floor of the “E” building at the BU Medical Campus.
Currently, we offer next generation sequencing via the Illumina NextSeq instruments and analysis of gene expression using the Affymetrix GeneChip platform. For more information go to the services section of our website. For all platforms, users of the facility provide us with high quality samples, and the Microarray & Sequencing Resource does the rest. We also offer analysis of RNA and DNA using Agilent Bioanalyzer and TapeStation. We offer the same services to researchers outside of Boston University on an available-resource basis.
All interested researchers are encouraged to contact the Microarray & Sequencing Resource to discuss potential projects or to ask any question about the use of microarrays or next-generation sequencing. Dr. Alekseyev can provide advice on experimental design, RNA isolation methods, and other aspects of microarray and sequencing processes. Dr. Lenburg can provide advice on experimental design and data analysis.
If you are ready to submit samples to the Microarray & Sequencing Core, please fill out the submission form HERE.
Please contact us at MSRLab@bu.edu. We look forward to talking with you!
