The University of Kansas Medical Center - Microarray Facility (MF) was established by the University of Kansas School of Medicine and operates with the support of the Smith Intellectual and Developmental Disabilities Research Center (SIDDRC) NICHD HD 02528. The mission of the Microarray Facility is to provide centralized access to gene expression microarray technology for the advancement of research conducted by investigators of KUMC, Kansas Regents Institutions and Frontiers: The Heartland Institute for Clinical and Translational Research.
The University of Kansas Medical Center has established the Microarray Facility featuring the Affymetrix GeneChip® System. Utilizing GeneChip® arrays, researchers can monitor expression in multiple modeling systems including 3’ expression arrays, Whole Transcript arrays and miRNA arrays as well as conduct genomic analysis using Genome Wide SNP arrays. Microarray data can be analyzed with aftermarket analysis software or using Affymetrix’s Transcriptome Analysis Console (TAC) or with the NetAffx Analysis Center at www.affymetrix.com. The Microarray Facility operates in conjunction with the KUMC Bioinformatics Core which serves as a resource for data analysis.
