RNA Quality Assessment
As RNA quality assessment is a critical aspect of any gene expression experiment, the quality of RNA samples delivered to the Gene Expression Core is assessed using the Agilent 2100 Bioanalyzer. This method may not be appropriate for highly degraded RNA samples, in which case other quality control metrics may be used.
By determining a priori the level of degradation within a sample, researchers can select those samples that can provide the highest quality gene expression profiling data.
The cost for each project is dependent on experimental design, vendor costs and time required for completion. This information is provided in each project proposal, which must be approved by the principal investigator prior to project initiation.
