Onco-Genomics Technologies

The OGSR is located on the 4th floor of the Papanicolaou Cancer Research Building (PAP) and occupies 660 sq.ft. of laboratory space. It comprises two distinct pre-analytical and analytical facilities: The Sample Processing Laboratory (PAP 428) houses all equipment, liquid handling automation, supplies and resources required for handling and processing samples for nucleic acid extraction, amplification, the preparation gene expression assays and NGS sequencing libraries; The Molecular Analysis Laboratory (PAP 415) houses all of the analytical instrumentation for qPCR, ddPCR, nanoString barcoding/gene expression assays and next generation sequencing. The OGSR office is located in PAP 414.
