Biochemical Genetics Laboratory - UCSD

The Biochemical Genetics Laboratory at the University of California San Diego has been in operation since the establishment of the UCSD Medical School in 1969. As such, we are one of the oldest practicing labs in the field of Metabolomics. We offer CLIA-certified, quantitative analysis for over 150 targeted metabolites, in addition to many common metabolic tests, and several tests not generally available in other laboratories, which have been developed in the conduct of research or the care of our patients with inborn errors of metabolism.

Cytoscape is the industry standard software environment for visualizing, analyzing, and modeling genetic networks. It is also designed to integrate these networks with annotations, gene expression profiles and other state data. Although Cytoscape was originally designed for biological research, now it is a general platform for complex network analysis and visualization.
