High Content Cellular Imaging and Analysis (Coming Soon)

For assays requiring high content imaging, we will offer the Incucyte and Nikon platforms, which have fully automated imaging capacity.

These systems combine outstanding optical components with software and application support to allow high-throughput microscopy and sophisticated image analysis. Images can be stored within our network and can be re-analyzed with available software.

IncuCyte ZOOM Live-Cell Analysis System

Manufacturer website >

Automated high-throughput live imaging and analysis with 3D capacity.

Nikon Eclipse Ti-E Inverted Microscope System

Manufacturer website >

Automated stage and JOBS Module to set up effortless multi-well plate imaging and analysis, even at high magnification and resolution.

Gene Editing and Functional Assays (Coming Soon)

    • Technical Resources and Methods:
      • Designing and making sgRNA constructs (Downloads a Word file)
      • Making gRNA without cloning (overlap PCR template generation; pptx file)
      • Zhang lab CRISPR resources (consult if you are new to CRISPRs)
      • Benchling has nice CRISPR guide RNA selection tools, including HR template design
      • Singh et al. A Mouse geneticist’s practical guide to CRISPR applications. GENETICS, 199:1-15 (2015)
      • Using SCR7 to promote homology-directed targeting over NHEJ - Protocol expanded from the GENETICS paper
  • RNAi/ siRNA
  • microRNA
    • The Seq-N-Edit Core can order and create custom libraries and relevant screening reagents for siRNA for the human and mouse genomes, and human and mouse miRNA libraries (mimic and inhibitor). Custom libraries for cherry-picked hit lists are very useful to test functional relevance of candidates identified from analysis of sequence data.
