The OHSU Gene Profiling Shared Resource (GPSR) was founded in 2001 with the mission to serve research scientists and clinicians as a full-service genomics facility focused on providing high quality, cost efficient research services using DNA microarrays. The core lab initially provided support for the Affymetrix GeneChip microarray platform and in-house Spotted Arrays. In 2007, the GPSR added support for Illumina BeadChip arrays. In 2009, the spotted arrays were phased out of service and expression profiling and DNA genotyping services were continued on just the Affymetrix and Illumina technology platforms. Over the past decade, the GPSR has expanded its platforms and services to include real-time PCR and RNA and DNA isolation support.
The GPSR is a state-of-the-art facility with rigorous tracking and standardization, and experience processing thousands of samples for customers located at Oregon Health & Science University (OHSU) and elsewhere. Data generated from the GPSR has contributed to numerous research publications spanning fields such as Cancer Research, Immunology, Stem Cell Research, and Brain Research.
The Gene Profiling Shared Resource (GPSR) is a unit of the Integrated Genomics Laboratory which is located in Richard Jones Hall on the Marquam Hill Campus of Oregon Health & Science University, Portland, Oregon. Our laboratory and offices are on the fifth floor in rooms 5390 (Laboratory) and 5327 (Director's offices).
