Key Information

Notification of Results and Data Analysis

A typical hybridization will result in multiple raw data files. Users are notified by e-mail when the raw data is available for download from their account on this web site. The Core recognizes that many users will want help performing data analysis. Data analysis is provided through the Informatics/Bioinformatics Shared Service Researchers wishing to meet individually for data analysis and consultation should contact David Mount to schedule an appointment once all the relevant hybridizations have been completed. Visit the Bioinformatics Shared Resource website. 


Although the Core receives support from the UACC, the Southwest Environmental Health Science Center, and the BIO5 institute, costs not covered by these supporting institutions must be recovered as follows (costs are per sample or array):
