Molecular Genomics

Shared Resources

The Molecular Genomics Core provides high quality services in genomics in support of basic and clinical science research to identify molecular components and signatures associated with cancer biology and response to therapy. The core staff is highly trained and provides expertise in a variety of instrumentation platforms as well as guidance in study design and grant preparation.  The core staff develops and provides cutting edge technology with a focus on facilitating precision medicine benefits to the clinical research enterprise.  The Molecular Genomics Core works closely with other cores to provide seamless integration of sample preparation and isolation into molecular workflows and coordination of downstream analysis by the Cancer Informatics core.
