Shared Resources

Genomics and Computational Biology



The major objectives of the Genomics and Computational Biology Shared Resource are to provide Moores Cancer Center investigators with high quality standard, cutting-edge, and custom genomics services and data analyses, as well as consultation on experimental design and training/education about genomic methods and bioinformatics.

  1. To provide expert consultation on experimental designs and analysis approaches of large-scale microarray and NGS datasets.
  2. To generate microarray and high-throughput sequence data in a cost-effective efficient manner with rapid-turn around.
  3. To perform intermediate analysis of high-throughput sequence data including, DNA variant calling, mRNA isoform calling, miRNA analysis and DNA methylation analysis using established pipelines.
  4. To analyze genomic data including tumor profiling for DNA somatic mutations, differential expression analysis, as well as network and systems analysis.
