Tissue processing for Genomic Analysis

To enable integrated analysis of DNA and RNA from clinical specimens, we have developed a suite of protocols for collecting tissues and blood, generating slides for pathology review, and co-isolation of nucleic acids.

Many of these protocols have been adapted and operationalized by the Translational Genomics Laboratory (https://labs.oicr.on.ca/translational-genomics-laboratory), a collaborative clinically-oriented research platform jointly sponsored by the Ontario Institute for Cancer Research and the Princess Margaret Cancer Centre.
