Epigenetics Core Facility


The Epigenetics Core Facility provides an array of state-of-the- art epigenetics research resources and services that include: flow cytometry, single cell genomic analysis, quantitative gene expression analysis, in situ hybridization with special resolution, DNA/chromatin extraction, fragmentation, and protein-nucleic acid association (ChIP) from tissue and enriched population, and next generation sequencing (RNA-seq and ChIP-seq). The facility welcomes users from CUNY, other academic and research institutions, start-up companies and industry.
