Functional Genomics Unit

The Genomic Unit of IDIBAPS provides to research groups access to a set of genome wide protocols. We manage samples for genomic projects starting from quantitative and qualitative analysis of nucleic acids up to genome wide gene expression, genotyping and gene dose analysis using different platforms including real-time PCR and microarrays. Recently we have incorporated a next generation sequencer in our facility.

Services and technologies:

  • Quantification of nucleic acids (Nanodrop 1000, Qubit)
  • Qualitative analysis of nucleic acids (Bioanalyzer 2100)
  • Expression analysis by Real-time PCR (Viia7-Applied Biosystems, BioMark –Fluidigm)
  • Genotyping analysis by Real-time PCR (Viia7-Applied Biosystems, BioMark –Fluidigm)
  • Digital PCR (BioMark –Fluidigm)
  • Genome Wide Expression analysis (Affymetrix microarrays)
  • Genome Wide Genotyping analysis (Affymetrix microarrays)
