Pharmaceutical Genetics Laboratory

The Pharmaceutical Genetics Laboratory (460 Pharmacy Building) provides research support for an array of basic molecular biology techniques to assist students and faculty in addressing questions in pharmacogenetics research. The laboratory has the necessary equipment to perform quantitative real-time PCR, DNA genotyping, DNA cloning, recombinant protein expression, fluorescence microscopy, and imaging. The facility provides varied equipment including real-time PCR cyclers (Bio-Rad and Stratagene), a Bio-Rad photo documentation system, nano drop spectrophotometers, a Zeiss Axiovert 200M microscope, gradient PCR thermal cyclers, refrigerated centrifuges and ultracentrifuges, dedicated -20 ºC and -80 ºC freezers, and miscellaneous equipment.
