  1. Resource Description
    "The Molecular Genetics Core Facility (MGCF) is a non-profit core laboratory in the Program in Genomics and Genetics Division of Children's Hospital Boston offering genomics services for academic research institutions. The majority of MGCF users are investigators from Children's Hospital Boston and the surrounding Harvard affiliates, but the MGCF also serves laboratories throughout the entire United States. The MGCF is comprised of a compilation of smaller cores partially supported by private and federal funds. Funding is provided in part through The Intellectual and Developmental Disabilities Research Center, The Manton Center for Orphan Disease Research, The Wellstone Center for Muscular Dystrophy, and The Neuromuscular Disease Project of the Program in Genomics at Children's Hospital Boston. The overall objective of the MGCF is to provide a location where researchers can have access to high quality, low cost genomic technology services and expertise in a timely, affordable manner. The services offered include DNA sequencing, Next-Gen sequencing, Affymetrix and Illumina whole-genome expression and genotyping microarray technology, microsatellite genotyping, and high-throughput qPCR and SNP services on the Fluidigm Biomark System. The MGCF also assists investigators with project design and collaborates on linkage and association study analysis."
