Andrew Nickerson wins January DNA Services Template Quality Challenge

Each month, the DNA Services Core Facility analyzes the DNA sequencing metadata (read length, quality scores, etc) and gives $54 worth of sequencing credit to the “winner” of the Template Quality Challenge. October’s winner is Anderw Nickerson of the Nan Lab (Biomedical Engineering) for “best plasmid template” with a contiguous read length of 1117 with 971 high quality (>Q20) bases. Congratulations, Andrew! In January, DNA Services sequenced ~1500 templates, including fosmids, BACs or large plasmids, PCR … Read More

The story of how two FEI microscopes found a (temporary) home on the hill

This article was originally posted on the School of Medicine Research Voice by Rachel Shafer. It has been re-posted in its entirety with permission. When the forklift began skidding down the dirt ramp to Richard Jones Hall carrying a crate of sensitive FEI equipment, Martha Wong saw her worst nightmare coming true. For almost a year now, the project manager for OHSU Facilities Design & Construction had been leading an intense logistical effort to bring … Read More

Focus on partnership: FEI microscopes arrive on campus

This article was originally posted on the School of Medicine Research Voice by Rachel Shafer. It has been re-posted in its entirety with permission. On July 1, three state-of-the-art FEI electron microscopes arrived on campus, augmenting the instrumentation available to researchers via the OHSU Electron Microscopy (EM) Core Facility and marking a milestone for the OHSU/FEI Living Lab for Cell Biology. Announced last September, the three highly advanced microscopes are a key part of the … Read More

Reminder: 3rd annual metal ion core open house, June 29

Have you ever wanted to know what’s really in the water you drink, or what sorts of elements are in the produce you get from the store? Well here’s your chance: Back by popular demand, it’s the Third Annual Metal Ion Core Open House! The Ralle Lab has invited  OHSU students, staff and faculty–as well as the general public–to bring in their samples from home to be tested for ‘hardness’ and for the presence of heavy metals, … Read More

DNA Services Core May Template Quality Challenge winner

Each month, the DNA Services Core Facility analyzes the DNA sequencing metadata (read length, quality scores, etc) and gives a $54 worth of sequencing credit to the “winner” of the Template Quality Challenge. In May, DNA Services sequenced ~2500 DNA samples, large and small. Of the former, ~70% produced contiguous read lengths of 800 bases or more. The month’s winner is Ronn Leon of the Fleming lab (Bone Marrow Transplant) for “Best DNA sequencing sample” with a contiguous read … Read More
