Overview of Services


Welcome to the RNA In Situ Hybridization Core at Baylor College of Medicine.


The Core performs non-radioactive RNA in situ hybridization (ISH) on tissue sections. A unique high-throughput technology developed by the Core (Yaylaoglu MB, Titmus A, Visel A, Alvarez-Bolado G, Thaller C, Eichele G. Dev Dyn. 2005 Oct;234(2):371-86) is used to determine gene expression patterns with an emphasis on tissues from rodent experimental models. The Core provides a full service that includes collecting, or assisting in collection, of animal tissue specimens, preparation of frozen and paraffin sections, preparation of RNA probes from customer templates, conducting high throughput ISH and documentation and quantification of expression patterns by microscopy. For human studies, customers must provide tissue sections.
