Welcome to SUNYMAC

SUNYMAC is a Core Facility that provides both fee-for-service sample preparation and analysis and free access to several pieces of common use equipment. The Core specializes in genome-wide or targeted high-throughput gene expression, genotyping, and copy number mapping, as well as ChIP-seq and methylation-seq analysis. The primary technologies include Affymetrix GeneChip and Illumina next-generation sequencing (NGS), as well as Sanger sequencing. SUNYMAC also maintains instrumentation for sample enrichment (laser microdissection), nucleic acid purification and Q/C analysis (Agilent Bioanalyzer), as well as NGS library construction (Covaris ultrasonicator), and target validation (BioRad digital droplet qPCR and real-time qPCR system, and BioPlex/Luminex system).

SUNYMAC is located in the Institute for Human Performance room 3636.
