Using the Facility

Image Analysis Resources
  • Contact Harry Gao from the DNA Sequencing/Solexa Core and Xiwei Wu or Xutao Deng from the BIC to ensure optimal experimental design.
 
  • When the DNA Sequencing/Solexa Core completes a sequencing run the data will be directly piped to the BIC staff unless instructed otherwise.
 
  • The turn-around time will vary depending on the complexity of the project. The turn-around time for most applications is 2-3 weeks. For novel applications, the turn-around time may be up to 3-4 weeks.
 
  • The BIC does not typically support analyzing public domain sequencing data.
 
  • Contact Haiqing Li if support is needed on LIMS, database, software or hardware issues related to sequencing.

Genomic Analysis Resources
  • The BIC analyzes microarray data produced by the Functional Genomics Core. The turn-around time (after receiving the raw data from the Functional Genomics Core) is typically 2-3 weeks.
 
  • The BIC also provides some data mining of publicly available datasets on a case-by-case basis.  Contact Yate-Ching Yuan (yyuan@coh.org) for more information.

Computer-Assisted Molecular Design Resources
Contact Yate-Ching Yuan to set up a project planning meeting for the purpose of assembling team collaborations from other Cores as needed.
