Epigenetics Core Facility

  • COVID-19 Update: Current Status - Last Updated June 30, 2020

    We are currently in Phase 2 of our ramp up plan, which means critical, time-sensitive research will be allowed, with up to 20% building occupancy allowed.​ Please review our plan for increasing on-site research activity following NYS PAUSE and check back regularly for status updates.

The Epigenetics Core Facilities provide an array of state-of-the-art epigenetics research resources and services that include: automated single cell isolation and subsequence nucleic acid extraction, quantitative gene expression analysis with special expertise in low input amount, DNA/chromatin extraction and fragmentation and protein-nucleic acid association (ChIP) from tissue and enriched population, next generation sequencing library preparation (RNA-seq and ChIP-seq) and quality control check. The Core also houses a sophisticated flow cytometry cell sorter that is equipped with 4 lasers and capable of detecting up to 11 colors. The sorter allows automated cytofluorimetric analysis and the sterile sorting of specific cell types.

For consultation on experimental design and instrument capabilities, please contact Epigenetics Core Facility Director Dr. Jia Liu, or call 212.413.3183.
