The MUSC ProteoGenomics Facility was established in 2003 by the late Dr. W.Scott Argraves and offers a range of protein-related and genomics services to the MUSC research community as well as to outside academic and corporate researchers.
Genomics related services include:
- Qualitative analysis of RNA (i.e., Agilent Lab-on-a-chip Bioanalyzer)
- DNA microarray based whole transcriptome and miRNA expression profiling, SNP and ChIP-Chip analysis
- Real time PCR
- Next generation sequencing (i.e., Ion Torrent PGM) for RNA-seq, resequencing and ChIP-seq applications
- Bioinformatics services for analysis of DNA microarray and next generation sequencing data and web-based archiving of data
- Cytogenetics microarray analysis (CytoScan® HD Cytogenetics)
The MUSC Proteogenomics Facility is supported through a combination of institutional funds , funds from NIH grants as well as fees for services rendered. Currently the facility is support by two NIH grants: 1) the NIH/NCRR South Carolina COBRE for Cardiovascular Disease (NIH/NIGMS GM103342), and 2) the South Carolina IDeA Networks of Biomedical Research Excellence (INBRE) (NIH/NIGMS GM103499).
