Scientific Cores & Shared Resources Genotyping Core Laboratory

Researchers using complex genetically modified mouse models recognize that genotyping is tedious and time-consuming, with no room for error. NYU School of Medicine’s Genotyping Core Laboratory provides fast, accurate, convenient, and affordable genotyping technologies. We use conventional polymerase chain reaction (PCR) and gel electrophoresis methods. By pooling samples from a group of users, we can better ensure accuracy, cost-effectiveness, and quality control.

Our team of professional technicians and scientists has years of genotyping and troubleshooting experience, averaging 1,500 tails per month from an expanding library of more than 175 protocols.

Location and Contact Information

Our laboratory is located at NYU Langone Medical Center in New York City, at 522 First Avenue, in Medical Science Building room 362. For general inquiries, call 212-263-9140, fax 212-263-9170, or email mgc@nyumc.org.

Our laboratory is open from 10:00AM to 6:00PM. Outside of these hours, investigators can deliver samples to the cold room drop-off box in Medical Science Building room 345.

How to Acknowledge the Genotyping Core Laboratory

Please acknowledge the Genotyping Core Laboratory in all publications and grant applications if you are using equipment, technologies, expertise, or data generated at the lab. Authorship should be considered when lab members are significantly involved in developing the experimental design or contribute to the publication content by advancing it to publishable form. Please send us a PDF file of your publications, and let us know if a grant is awarded. This enables us to demonstrate our involvement in the research of a large number of laboratories at NYU Langone, aiding the procurement of future equipment for our lab.

Additionally, all publications resulting from the use of this lab are required to conform to the National Institutes of Health public access policy and be deposited in PubMed Central.

To acknowledge that you agree to our policy, sign the Genotyping Core Laboratory acknowledgment form and email it to Maryann Huie, technical director, at maryann.huie@nyumc.org.
