Oklahoma State University Genomics and Proteomics Center
The OSU Genomics and Proteomics Center includes a Proteomics Core (formerly the DNA and Protein Core Facilities) and a Genomics Resource Facility (formerly the Microarray and Bioinformatics 'BIOinfOSU' Core) to serve the OSU genomics community from the Department of Biochemistry and Molecular Biology in the Division of Agricultural Sciences and Natural Resources.
This is the landing page of the Genomics University Core Resource Facility (UCRF).
The Facilities provide technical advice in experimental design, the complexities of data analysis, training, and bioinformatics on a cost recovery basis. The Genomics UCRF specializes in high-through sequencing, and bioinformatics, while maintaining the ability to produce, distribute, and analyze DNA microarrays both of which can provide clients with genetic biomarkers and functional annotation of differentially expressed genes. The facilities have been operating for 18 years and were formally initiated with funding from the National Institutes of Health Biomedical Research Infrastructure Network program and the National Science Foundation’s Experimental Program to Stimulate Competitive Research.
Dr. Peter R. Hoyt was hired as the Facilities Director in 2005. Dr. Hoyt formerly operated a Microarray Core Facility in the Division of Life Sciences at the Oak Ridge National Laboratory.
