Dr. Eric Sobel
Department of Human Genetics 310-825-1111
The Bioinformatics Core maintains state-of-the-art computing resources for genetic studies: software library, computational cluster, storage array (replicated off-site), and public & private, web & database servers.
Genotyping and DNA Sequencing Core
Dr. Jeanette Papp
Department of Human Genetics 310-825-6204
Sequencing & Genotyping Core Facility provides sequencing and genotyping services to the research genetics community. A wide variety of genetic technologies are available which can accommodate studies ranging from large-scale, high-throughput projects, to small-scale, customized projects.
DNA Microarray Core
Dr. Stanley Nelson
Departments of Pediatrics & Human Genetics 310-267-1947
DNA Microarray Core Facility provides user access to DNA microarray and next generation sequencing technologies in order to permit individual labs to have access to broad-based genome-scale analytical tools.
Informatics Center for Neurogenetics and Neurogenomics
Dr. Nam Tran
Informatics Center for Neurogenetics and Neurogenomics provides advanced analysis and informatics support to neuroscientists at UCLA, including GGNRC residents.
EpiGenetics and Genetics Core
The Epigenetics and Genetics Core facility provides customized genotyping, sequencing and epigenetic services to further the research efforts of members of the Center for Neurobehavioral Genetics and the greater UCLA community. Current services include custom snp genotyping and targeted methylation studies with a Sequenom MassArray system. Whole genome , whole transcriptome and targeted resequencing studies will be accommodated on a soon to be installed Illumina HiSeq2000 sequencing system.
Southern California Genotyping Consortium (SCGC)
The Southern California Genotyping Consortium ( SCGC) was formed to provide UCLA researchers and other consortium members with access to cutting edge high throughput genomic scale genotyping, gene expression and DNA methylation screening services. The SCGC operates an Illumina BeadLab 1000 laboratory system, a microarray based platform for both large and small scale genomic screens.
Moss Spivak Cell Imaging Core (within the California Nanosystems Institute)
CNSI Building B145
Dr. Matthew Schibler
The Advanced Light Microscopy/Spectroscopy Shared Facility (of which the Carol Moss Spivak Imaging Facility is now a part) in the CNSI provides a collection of high-level, customized biological fluorescence microscopes and small-animal imaging devices that provide the ability to study biological processes with high spatial and temporal resolution in whole organisms and in living cells down to the single molecule detection level with nanometer-accuracy. The facility currently has the following technologies: Wide-field Fluorescence Imaging Microscopy, Confocal One-Photon and Two-Photon Laser Scanning Microscopy, (both point scanning and spinning disk), Fluorescence Correlation Spectroscopy (FCS), Fluorescence Resonance Energy Transfer (FRET), microscopic and macroscopic Fluorescence Lifetime Imaging (FLIM) with Time-Correlated-Single-Photon-Counting (TCSPC) and Near-Infrared (NIR) Detection, Stimulated Emission Depletion laser-scanning microscopy (STED) (a super-resolution technique), both microscopic and macroscopic (small animal) Spectral Unmixing and Laser Microdissection.
