Core Facilities And Related Services At Penn
Given below are the list of Core facilities provided at the University of Pennsylvania with relevance to Bioinformatics. Some of the listed cores may not seem relevant to Bioinformatics based on their title. However, they actively offer related data processing services which are of importance from a Bioinformatics perspective.
For information such as contact details for the facility of your need and interest, click on the links below.
Bioinformatics Service Core
The Bioinformatics Service Core of the Institute for Biomedical Informatics (IBI) provides professional bioinformatics services, including data analysis and consultation to the Penn biomedical research community. The core is also dedicated to build efficient pipelines to handle various next-generation sequencing (NGS) data, generated within our NGS core or elsewhere.
Center for Host-Microbial Interactions
The Penn Vet Center for Host-Microbial Interactions (CHMI) formed in 2013 as an interdisciplinary center that helps faculty leverage cutting-edge genomic approaches to understand how microbes (viruses, bacteria and parasites) influence animal health and disease.
Clinical Research Computing Unit (CRCU)
The CRCU provides expertise in project management, data coordination and research computing tailored to meet your project requirements.
Flow Cytometry & Cell Sorting Facility
The Flow Cytometry and Cell Sorting Resource Laboratory (FCCSRL) is dedicated to providing Penn investigators access to high-quality, cost-effective flow cytometric services, as well providing the scientific expertise necessary to effectively integrate this technology into their research projects.
High-Throughput Screening Core
The High-throughput Screening (HTS) core provides the Perelman School of Medicine community with professional HTS screening services to identify genes or organic small molecule modulators of signaling pathways, cellular phenotypes, and protein function in models of human disease.
Next Generation Sequencing Core
The Next-Generation Sequencing Core offers comprehensive high-throughput sequencing services from experiment design to basic data analysis to members of the University of Pennsylvania.
Penn Genomics Analysis Core - DNA Sequencing Facility
Penn Genomics Analysis Core is an Abramson Cancer Center Shared Resource that is approved and partially funded by the National Cancer Institute. They offer various DNA sequencing services along with Molecular Biology and Bioinformatics services.
Penn Genomics Analysis Core- Molecular Profiling Facility
Now part of the the Penn Genomics Analysis Core (previously known as the Molecular Profiling Facility) provides an integrated set of services for DNA and RNA profiling. These services are delivered by experienced genomics professionals, including a focused bioinformatics support staff.
