HOW TO COLLABORATE
Our mission of enabling
epigenomics driven discoveries is accomplished in part through collaborative
projects between the Center and investigators at UC San Diego and beyond. There are
several ways researchers can engage in research with the Center.
Collaborative Research Program
collaborative research program brings together external academic researchers
with scientists within the Center for Epigenomics to answer outstanding
research questions via the application of our automated epigenomics technology
platforms such as high-throughput ATAC-seq and single-cell ATAC-seq. The goal
of this program is to leverage the unique experience and expertise of each
participant to create new and impactful research opportunities.
Center for Epigenomics considers new collaborations for this program as
research bandwidth allows. These projects can be funded through a variety of
mechanisms including joint grant applications, subcontracts, and campus
recharge. If interested in exploring a potential collaboration or joint grant
application, please contact Dr. Allen Wang.
Transformative Collaborative Pilot Project Initiative
Each year the Center for
Epigenomics issues a call for proposals to engage in collaborative pilot projects
with truly transformative potential. These proposals are reviewed by an
external committee, and a select number are chosen to receive substantial
material and personnel resources from the Center for Epigenomics. For more
information about this annual program and the application process click here.
Our automated technology
platforms enable cost-effective workflows to incorporate epigenomics into a
variety of research projects. In some cases, we can offer epigenomic assays on
a fee-for-service basis. Please note that currently only ATAC-seq is available
as a service. To inquire about these services, please send an email to
