The Technology Center for Genomics & Bioinformatics (TCGB) is a fully automated, high-throughput genomic Center equipped with all major next generation sequencing. TCGB provides state-of-the-art genomics technologies, comprehensive services, specialized expertise and a wide range of trainings, enabling these services in a cost-effective and timely manner to serve basic science and translational/clinical research. In addition, TCGB provides pre-experiment consultation and post-experiment support, including preparation of grant applications, publications, and strategic planning for additional research steps. TCGB also provides educational training to faculty, staff, and students to raise awareness of new directions and major discoveries in the areas of genomics and bioinformatics.
Goals & Mission
- To provide long and short read sequencing (third-generation and next generation/second-generation) to the research community.
- To develop and maintain the highest quality and reliability for the genomic services that we offer.
- To lead in establishing quality standards for genomic services (e.g., sample processing, data analysis and interpretation).
- To advance the relatively new specialty area of personalized medicine through education, research, and publications.
