The Single Cell Genomics Core Facility provides several different services to conduct global gene expression studies for investigators from Cincinnati Children’s, the University of Cincinnati and other academic institutions. Technology from 10x Genomics and Fluidigm is used to run single cell mRNA-Seq projects. The core uses RNA-Seq assays from Tecan Genomics, Takara and Illumina for samples with limited amounts of starting RNA. Microarray technology utilizing the Affymetrix GeneChip platform is also available.
Since being established in 2000, the facility has generated gene expression data for over 17,500 samples and hundreds of single cell projects submitted by over 100 different investigators.
Researchers interested in submitting samples to the core should call 513-636-0290.
