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 and the Massively Parallel Sequencing Shared Resource. The OCTRI laboratory can prepare samples for RNA/DNA microarray analysis at the OHSU GPSR.
