The Cytogenetics Core provides specialized cytogenetics-related services to investigators at Mayo Clinic and other institutions. Scientific applications of Cytogenetics Core services include:
The core's services can aid researchers in pinpointing genetic regions that are important for the development of specific diseases and malignancies. With the recognition that cancer is a genetic disease, many cancer researchers, including those in the Mayo Clinic Cancer Center, require access to Cytogenetics Core services.
The Cytogenetics Core is located in the Stabile Building at Mayo Clinic in Rochester, Minn. It is part of the Medical Genome Facility, formerly known as the Advanced Genomics Technology Center, within the Center for Individualized Medicine.
The Medical Genome Facility is composed of four genomics-oriented cores: Biospecimen Accessioning and Processing Core, Cytogenetics Core, Genotyping Core, and Pathology Research Core (formerly known as the Tissue and Cell Molecular Analysis Core). These cores work together to provide Mayo Clinic investigators with professional, efficient, low-cost access to the latest genomics technologies.
