UW-Madison offers extensive, state-of-the-art core facilities to support research.
The RESEARCH PROJECT RESOURCE GUIDE is a roadmap for researchers on the UW-Madison campus, connecting them to the materials, information, contacts, and assets available for every stage of the research process. A full list of RESEARCH CORES and RESOURCES are available through the Research Project Resource Guide. Several of key relevance to genomics and CGSI research include:
- BIOPHYSICS INSTRUMENTATION FACILITY (BIF) The BIF is part of the UW-Madison Department of Biochemistry and provides state-of-the-art instruments to enable structural analysis of macromolecules.
- BIOTECHNOLOGY CENTER (UWBC) The UW Biotechnology Center provides fee-for-service research support through several facilities, including: Next Generation Sequencing Center, DNA Synthesis Facility, Gene Expression Center, Mass Spectrometry Facility, Targeted Genome Editing Facility, Transgenic Facility, Bioinformatic Resource Center.
- CARBONE CANCER CENTER (CCC) The UW CCC provides service to patients and researchers through several shared facilities, find out more on their website: https://cancer.wisc.edu/research/shared-resources/
- HIGH THROUGHPUT COMPUTING CENTER (HTCC) The UW-Madison HTCondor Project supports high-throughput computing on large collections of computing resources distributed across campus. Users can work with the HTC group to implement and submit highly parallelized computing processes for high-throughput computational projects.
- NATIONAL MAGNETIC RESONANCE FACILITY The NMRFAM facility is available to scientists on and off campus to support research on macromolecular structure, dynamics, functional analysis, and metabolomic and natural product analysis.
- DATA SCIENCE HUB Coordinates existing resources and expertise around a campus-wide data science strategy.
- INSTITUTE FOR CLINICAL AND TRANSLATIONAL RESEARCH (ICTR) Provides investigators readily available critical resources, including informatics tools, biostatistical support, and an array of core technologies.
- LABORATORY FOR OPTICAL AND COMPUTATIONAL INSTRUMENTATION (LOCI) Directed by Dr. Kevin Eliceiri, LOCI develops optical and computational technologies for cell imaging.
