Genetic Resources Core Facility DNA Services

    GRCF Upcoming Events   

     

Overview of Services

The Genetic Resources Core Facility (GRCF) is a Johns Hopkins service center providing research expertise, products, and services for the study of the human genome. We strive to streamline services such as sample collection, cell line establishment, cell line authentication, cryogenic storage, DNA isolation, oligo and gene synthesis, methylation testing, both Sanger and next-gen sequencing as well as genotyping from handfuls to millions of variants. The GRCF can also help with project design and custom assay development for DNA based studies.  

 

We are a part of Johns Hopkins Genomics and function as three units: the Core Store, the Cell Center & Biorepository and DNA Services.  This site is for ordering some of the services offered by the DNA Services unit.  Other services, including next-gen sequencing, may be ordered on our Genesifter server.  The Cell Center & Biorepository and the Core Store maintain separate ordering sites.

Samples for the both locations may be dropped off at the Blalock location or in one of our remote drop box locations.

 

Remote drop off locations:

  • Bayview: Core Store 24/7 machine, Asthma & Allergy Building 1st floor, slot F63
    • Samples must be dropped off by 11 AM daily.  Pickup time is dependent on Core Store staffing, but will never be before 11 AM.
  • CRB1: Core Store 24/7 machine, slot A63
    • Samples must be dropped off by 3 PM daily.  Pick up time is dependent on Core Store staffing.  If samples are picked up early, there will be a sign in the drop box that indicates that the pickup has already occurred.

How to Acknowledge Us:

The Genetic Resources Core Facility (GRCF) depends in part on proper recognition in publications, by formal mention in the acknowledgment section. Please use the suggested format below for your publications and grant applications:

“……….[insert the name of the service provided here]…………. was conducted at the Genetic Resources Core Facility, RRID:SCR_018669, Johns Hopkins University Department of Genetic Medicine, Baltimore, MD.”

If your journal is asking for RRIDs for materials and instrumentation used in your experiments, please reach out to us.
