Molecular Phenotyping and Genotyping Core

Overview of Services

The objective of the Molecular Phenotyping and Genotyping Core is to support Joslin and external investigators in the study of molecular mechanisms of disease by providing equipment, expertise, and services in molecular phenotyping, including nucleic acid sequence analyses, gene expression, and other “-omics” analyses, which would be too specialized or costly for individual laboratories to perform independently. Formerly known as the Advanced Genomics and Genetics Core, the Molecular Phenotyping Core is newly-named in recognition of the expansion of its analytical capacities to reflect not only genetic and genomic analyses but also metabolic phenotyping.
