Genomics and Cell Biology Core

The overall goal of the Genomics & Cell Biology Coreis to facilitate the application of cutting-edge genomics, bioinformatics, cell biology, and immunology techniques to nutrition and metabolic research.  Core services include

  1. Consultative services related to genomics, cell biology, and immunology research design.
  2. Provision of space, technical personnel, and specific training and supervision for utilizing specialized techniques and equipment used in cell biology, immunology, and genomics research, including “nanoString”-based transcriptional profiling, assistance in the development of high-content high-throughput assays using automated microscopic imaging, and fluorescent-activated cell sorting.
  3. A variety of genomics-related services related to next-generation sequencing,
  4. Bioinformatic analysis of various types of high-throughput data, including RNA-Seq, metagenomics, ChIP-Seq, proteomics, microarray data, as well as computational analysis of molecular pathways, networks and phenotypes.
