Microarray / Genomics
DNA / RNA-Analysis
The service area Core Facility Microarray / Genomics (CFM/G) provides the research departments of the institute with state-of-the-art technologies and platforms for functional genomics. CFM/G offers the planning, assistance and execution of microarray analyses and Next Generation Sequencing (NGS) projects. The service includes the design of pathogen- and customer-specific arrays, experimental and statistical planning of the investigation, RNA and DNA isolation, the production of NGS and single cell libraries as well as the execution of all laboratory work including quantification and quality controls, up to microarray data analysis and evaluation of the results. The projects comprise the microbial pathogenesis, the host reaction after infection with pathogens and the detection of biomarkers for diagnosis and prognosis of different diseases.
