  • Transcript

    • 1. Expertise in Gene Discovery, Microarray Development and Bioinformatics Heather R. Hammers BioFlorida’s Southeast Chapter Meeting Jupiter, Florida September 23, 2008
    • 2. Business is Expanding <ul><li>Here at EcoArray, our business is expanding from environmental to all microarray applications. </li></ul><ul><li>We have been very successful with our techniques in gene discovery and proficiency with downstream applications </li></ul>
    • 3. DNA Precision- Our Services <ul><li>cDNA library construction </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Normalized (LIB-NORM-SPE) </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Non-normalized (LIB-NN-SPE) </li></ul></ul><ul><li>Suppression Subtractive Hybridization (SSH) </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Standard subtraction </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Limited starting material </li></ul></ul><ul><li>Real-time PCR </li></ul><ul><li>Custom Gene Array Construction </li></ul><ul><li>Hybridizations (Array Processing) </li></ul><ul><li>Bioinformatics </li></ul>Library Construction Other Services
    • 4. Library Construction
    • 5. Create cDNA libraries ; Identify all expressed genes within a tissue Create subtraction libraries To identify differentially Expressed genes between two populations CLONE GENES AND SEQUENCE <ul><li>cDNA library options : </li></ul><ul><li>Non normalized </li></ul><ul><li>Normalized </li></ul><ul><li>(for removal of </li></ul><ul><li>redundant clones) </li></ul><ul><li>Subtraction library </li></ul><ul><li>options : </li></ul><ul><li>Standard subtraction </li></ul><ul><li>(500 µ gs total RNA) </li></ul><ul><li>Limited starting material </li></ul><ul><li>(1 µ g of high quality total RNA) </li></ul>
    • 6. Custom Gene Array Construction “Microarrays”
    • 7. You are interested in microarray technology but… <ul><li>We provide SSH libraries and normalized libraries as a first step in gene discovery </li></ul><ul><li>We can assemble your sequences, BLAST, design the probes, and manage your array </li></ul>Species of interest not yet sequenced? No commercially available array for your model organism?
    • 8. Hybridizations (Array Processing in our Lab) Agilent Microarray Kits 1. Microarray-Based Gene Expression Analysis One-Color Quick-AMP Labeling Kit (#5190-0442) Two Color Quick-Amp Labeling Kit (#5190-0444) 2. RNA Spike-In Kits One Color (#5188-5282) Two Color (#5188-5279) 3. Gene Expression Hybridization Kits (#5188-5242) 4. Gene Expression Wash Buffers 1 and 2 5. Stabilization and Drying Solution
    • 9. RT-PCR
    • 10. <ul><li>Custom primers and probe sets are designed using state of the art software and design parameters. </li></ul><ul><li>Each primer set is validated for specificity and efficiency. </li></ul><ul><li>Data is analyzed ( ΔΔ Ct used to compare changes in gene expression between controls and treated). </li></ul>
    • 11. Bioinformatics
    • 12. Gene Sequencing and Annotation <ul><li>Sequences will be quality trimmed and vector sequences will be removed; </li></ul><ul><li>Assembly of sequences- contigs and singlets will be queried (Blast X); </li></ul><ul><li>Sequence output- excel files listing accession number, e-value, and bit score for each gene is generated and sent to users. </li></ul>“ Let DNA Precision submit your clones to our sequencing facility ”
    • 13. Statistical Analysis Now what? We can do the analysis for you . Advanced Basic <ul><li>Filtering for outliers </li></ul><ul><li>Normalization </li></ul><ul><li>Principal component </li></ul><ul><li>ANOVA </li></ul><ul><li>Significance (p &lt; 0.05) </li></ul><ul><li>Fold change &gt; 2.0 </li></ul><ul><li>Gene ontology </li></ul>(optional) <ul><li>Predictive modeling </li></ul><ul><li>Biological pathways </li></ul><ul><li>Cluster Analysis </li></ul><ul><li>Biological interpretation </li></ul>
