Molecular Profiling Laboratory

The Molecular Profiling Laboratory (MPL) is one of the Cancer Center research centers that provide technological support to Cancer Center investigators.

Overview

Technologies available through MPL include Affymetrix DNA microarray (mRNA expression, tiling, resequencing, promoter, and SNP), RTQ-PCR (TaqMan assay), nucleic acid characterization (microscale UV spec and Agilent Bioanalyzer microcapillary electrophoresis), basic bioinformatics (array data analysis and computational data profiling), and RNAi knockdown of human and mouse genes using the shRNA lentivirus library clones generated by The RNAi Consortium (TRC) of the Broad Institute.

MPL is presently developing a laboratory automation system for RNAi knockdown screening using this resource.
