Proteogenomics Facility


Overview of Services

The MUSC Proteogenomics Facility offers a range of genomic services to the MUSC research community as well as to outside academic and corporate researchers. 


Instrumentation for independent operation and scheduling:

  • Real time PCR instrumentation (Biorad CFX96)
  • NanoDrop One for spectrophotometric analysis
  • Qubit 2.0 Fluorometer (Life Technologies) for specific and sensitive quantitation of DNA, RNA and protein
  • Monolight 2010 luminometer (BD Biosciences) for luciferase measurement


  • Agilent Bioanalyzer qualitative analysis of RNA and DNA
  • Affymetrix-based transcriptomic profiling (mRNA, microRNA)
  • Next generation sequencing (Ion Torrent PGM) for selected genomic, amplicon/resequencing and RNA sequencing applications
  • PCR service (large scale projects only) 


  • RT-qPCR: reverse transcription and quantitative PCR analysis service
  • Genotyping: PCR amplification with user-provided primers/template and agarose gel analysis


  • Microarray-related and DNA sequence-related analyses
  • Training in informatic software
  • Promoter and transcription factor analyses
  • Data analysis computer workstation equipped with dChip, MeV
Currently the facility is supported by:
1) NIH/NIGMS South Carolina IDeA Networks of Biomedical Research Excellence (INBRE) (GM103499)
2) Office of the Vice President for Research at the Medical University of South Carolina
