Functional GenomicsThe Functional Genomics Unit of the W.M. Keck Center uses high-throughput technologies for gene expression, SNP, microbial metagenome, and single cell analysis. The unit offers services for a number of advanced technologies including Fluidigm qPCR, SNP and single cell analysis, Illumina Bead Array, Agilent microarray, and Lifetech qPCR. In addition we have available technologies for accurate quantitation and quality assessment of nucleic acids (Nanodrop, Qubit, Bioanalyzer) as well as a BioRad TC20 cell counter for cell concentration and size distribution.
