Microarray Core Facility and Bioinformatics
Person: Giorgio Casari
Microarray technology is currently present at DIBIT as a partnership
with IFOM in Milan. This gives us access to 25 000 human Unigene
clones. This collection is physically present in UVS and is ordered.
In the framework of this application, we plan to organise a Microarray
Core Facility and Bioinformatics service (MCFB), that should provide
a spotting service on the solid supports, hybridization to investigator-provided
cDNA preparations, and reading and analysis of the hybridization
signals. The technical details of the system that will be chosen
have not been finalized, but we reckon that this service will be
essential for the support of most research lines in UVS.
