Campus Resources

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.
