Services

The OCTRI Core Laboratory can perform a variety of genetic type analyses and procedures including:

  • DNA sequencing, low to medium throughput using our ABI 3130xl Genetic Analyzer
  • Fragment analysis and AFLP analysis (DNA profiler) using GeneMapper software
  • Traditional genotyping and RFLP analysis by electrophoresis (e.g. ApoE genotyping)
  • SNP and STR analysis
  • Cell Immortilization with EBV
  • RNA and DNA isolation

Collaboration with Cores

The OCTRI Core Laboratory collaborates closely with the OHSU Gene Profiling Shared Resource. The OCTRI laboratory can prepare samples for RNA/DNA microarray analysis at the OHSU GPSR.
