Core Leader: Michael Mendenhall
The Advanced Genetic Technologies Core provides a range of services related to the manipulation and delivery of nucleic acids to biological systems. Services include but are not limited to Production and titering of recombinant viral vectors, subcloning, tagging of open reading frames, development of plasmids and/or RNAs for CRISPR/Cas manipulation, piggyBac transposon delivery systems, real-time PCR analysis, recombineering, in vitro transcription
Core Leader: David Watt
The Organic Synthesis Core provides biological investigators with access to “small” organic compounds that allow investigators at the University of Kentucky and other institutions to probe important biological questions relevant to the molecular basis of human medicine.
Core Leader: Carole Moncman
With the growing use of recombinant fluorescent proteins for cellular biochemical analyses, microscopy has become an essential tool for biochemists. The microscopy core houses four epifluorescent microscopes and an A1R confocal microscope. All of the microscopes are equipped with digital cameras for image acquisition. The goal of this core is to provide training and consultation for students, staff, and faculty in the use of our microscopes.
Core Leader: Louis Hersh
The Protein Core facilitates recombinant protein production and characterization of macromolecules, making available well-maintained equipment and instrumentation not normally found within individual laboratories. The mission of the Protein Core is to provide training and access to its facilities for members of the Center as well as the research community in general.
