Molecular Cytogenetics and Genomics Laboratory Services

Sequencing

The Molecular Cytogenetics and Genomics Laboratory at Texas A&M University performs ready-to-run sequencing reactions. You do the sequencing reaction yourself and we run the samples on 3730 capillary sequencer. For more details click here. Sequencing

Karyotyping

The Molecular Cytogenetics and Genomics Laboratory specializes in performing karyotyping analysis for a variety of animals such as cattle, horses, sheep, goats, pigs, dogs, cats and exotic species. For more details click here. Karyotyping

Genotyping

DNA sequencing is the process of determining the nucleotide order of a given DNA fragment. Thus far, most DNA sequencing has been performed using the chain termination method developed by Frederick Sanger. This technique uses sequence-specific termination of a DNA synthesis reaction using modified nucleotide substrates. However, new sequencing technologies such as Pyrosequencing are gaining an increasing share. For more details click here. Genotyping

FISH

FISH is carried out by request only and is used for:
  • Unequivocal identification of chromosomes involved in autosomal or sex chromosome aneuploidies;
  • Refinement of the analysis of complex chromosomal rearrangements (translocations, inversions, deletions);
  • Gene mapping. For more details click here.
