Below are some of the frequently used cores.
CHPC provides access to high performance computing resources, a broad spectrum of scientific computing software, and expert support to help faculty make use of deep computing resources. Usage is free to all faculty of Washington University.
The Flow Cytometry Core provides investigators with instrumentation and support for cell sorting as well as acquisition and analysis of flow cytometry data.
The Genome Technology Access Center (GTAC) provides DNA/RNA analysis resources for researchers at Washington University and beyond. We currently provide NextGen sequencing (2 illumina HiSeq2000s), microarray (all formats) and quantitative PCR.
This core enables small molecule screens to identify agonists/antagonist of biologically/pathologically interesting proteins and perform sub- or genome-wide siRNA screens in live cell functional assays.
The Hope Center Animal Surgery Core provides technical support and conducts experiments employing rodent models of neurological diseases.
The Hope Center Viral Vectors core provides lentiviral and AAV viral vectors for research applications. The Core provides traning and advice on vector usage and design and both small and large scale vector preprations.
The hESC Core provides facilities, reagents, and resources for hESC use, data collection, and training.
The Mission of the Mouse Genetics Core (MGC) is to provide a cost-effective method for generating and maintaining genetically altered mice for the entire Washington University research community.
We maintain a stockroom offering approximately 1500 commonly used lab consumables from more than 20 vendors which are available to the research community at a discount. Same day pickup or delivery is available for most products. We also provide basic tissue culture services and training in stem cell technology. We offer long-term cell storage, mycoplasma testing and provide access to various technologies requiring specialized equipment such as Amaxa's 4D Nucleofection device and Seahorse Bioscience's XF technology.
