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.
UCLA Neurosciences Genomics Core (UNGC)
The UCLA Neurosciences Genomics Core (UNGC) is currently operating an
Illumina BeadLab 1000 high throughput SNP genotyping system (iScan), a
Sequenom MassArray Compact mass spec and and two Illumina HiSeq 2500 next
generation sequencing instruments in the Gonda research facility on the
The UNGC is a not for profit academic resource available to researchers in
the Southern California region and beyond. Directed by Dr. Nelson Freimer,
the UNGC is committed to providing equivalent access to its members at all
Services include: DNA sequencing (Whole genome, RNASeq/whole transcriptome, snp discovery
etc.); Custom snp genotyping using the high throughput Illumina GoldenGate and
iSelect assays and with the Sequenom iPlex assay; Genotyping using all currently available Illumina Infinium whole genome chips; Gene expression using all currently available expression chips for human and mouse; Whole genome methylation using Illumina Meth-450 chips.
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.
