Our current technical focus is on improving reproducibility between hybridization experiments. We are increasing the number of replicate hybridizations and replicate spots for each experiment, and experimenting with automated hybridization stations.
As slide inventories permit, we are willing to provide microarrays to others on a cost-recovery or collaborative basis. See the Galbraith lab homepage for more information on facilities and ongoing microarray projects, and the FAQ for researchers wishing to produce microarrays in collaboration with the Galbraith lab.
