The purpose of the Genomics Core is to provide a centralized resource for access to state-of-the-art equipment used in DNA sequence and transcript analysis. The Genomics Core strives to provide high quality services with a rapid turnaround and support their services with well-trained personnel who are able to consult with users on how they may best utilize the services. The Genomics Core continues to evaluate and update their services so they remain cutting-edge and provide new services, as necessary, to continue to meet the needs of Holden Comprehensive Cancer Center investigators.
