The cores, staffed by experts and providing state-of-the-art instrumentation and tools, allow our scientists to pursue more ambitious investigations. Our core facilities scientists are instrumental in pushing the boundaries of current research methods, tailoring techniques to the scientific question at hand.
BaRC develops computational strategies and techniques that let researchers tackle big datasets and assists in creating graphics for publications. Tools developed and maintained by BaRC include TargetScan, one of the most widely used tools for predicting microRNA targets.
The Flow Cytometry Core Facility at the Whitehead Institute for Biomedical Research is a 24/7 facility that provides flow cytometry services to all researchers at the institute. Services provided include assisted cell sorting, analyzer training, education and experimental design and consultation assistance.
The Metabolite Profiling Core Facility allows researchers to explore the diverse world of small molecules and metabolites with high-resolution instruments. The core provides liquid chromatography mass spectrometry (LCMS) and assists in project design, implementation, and analysis.
The Proteomics Core performs “bottom-up” proteomics techniques that involve digesting proteins and analyzing their component peptides with high resolution mass spectrometry. The core offers quantitative proteomics, identification of post-translational protein modifications, and more.
