Whole Transcriptome RNA Profiling
We offer sequencing on the Proton for $350/sample for 6 samples and $425/sample for 4 samples. Affymetrix® and Illumina® microarray platforms start at $325/sample. We offer various bioinformatics services. In-depth quality control reports (transcriptome profiling efficiency, rRNA reads, etc.) are $100/project. We offer basic pathway analysis for $100/project.
Whole Genome Methylation
Researchers can interrogate > 485,000 methylation sites per human sample at single-nucleotide resolution. Content was selected with the guidance of a consortium of methylation experts comprising 22 members that represent 19 institutions worldwide. It covers 99% of RefSeq genes, with an average of 17 CpG sites per gene region distributed across the promoter, 5'UTR, first exon, gene body, and 3'UTR. It covers 96% of CpG islands, with additional coverage in island shores and the regions flanking them. Further content categories requested by the Consortium include:
- CpG sites outside of CpG islands
- Non-CpG methylated sites identified in human stem cells
- Differentially methylated sites identified in tumor versus normal (multiple forms of cancer) and across several tissue types
- CpG islands outside of coding regions
- miRNA promoter regions
We offer Ion AmpliSeq™ Cancer Hotspot Panels and Inherited Disease Panels, and custom-targeted panels.
Copy Number and Genotyping
Illumina or Affymetrix genotyping estimate copy number variances or consanguinity.
Researchers can interrogate bacterial and fungal populations in samples with sequencing
Bioinformatics and Analysis
We use a standard pipeline for every experiment. Advanced bioinformatics can be requested as a separate service for heat maps, 3D PCAs, pathway analysis, etc.
Custom projects are always welcome. The model for custom projects will be determined by time and effort involved, as well as the impact of the project on the scientific community at Cedars-Sinai.
