Partnership Opportunities


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.

I. Epigenomics Collaborative Research Program

Our 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.

The 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.

II. Annual 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.

III. Fee-for-Service

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
