The Genetics Resources Core Facility offers several different methods of genotyping. We feature high throughput genotyping on the Illumina platform, medium throughput genotyping on the Life Technologies Open Array platform with TaqMan® assays, and lower throughput genotyping via individual TaqMan®, Qiagen Pyrosequencing assays or STR/VNTR analysis. Most platforms offer specialized content for humans and mice, but we can work with you to genotype other organisms as well. The GRCF also offers STR profiling for Cell Line Authentication (please see Custom Genotyping).
Access to this technology is available fee-for-service through the GRCF or for free with an application through the CIDR mechanism. To apply to CIDR, you must have grant support through one of the thirteen member NIH institutes. CIDR also requires a written application, the details of which are available on the web site.
