Genomic Analysis Core

Director: Ganguly, Tapan., PhD


The Genomic Analysis Core combines the expertise and instrumentation of two facilities, the DNA Sequencing Facility and the Genomics Facility, to provide an integrated array of services for DNA sequencing and molecular profiling. Tapan Ganguly, PhD, the Director of the DNA Sequencing Facility since 2003, is the Director of the consolidated Core. The integration of the two Shared Resources provides more efficient access and clarity of technologies to Abramson Cancer Center (ACC) members. A team of highly experienced and trained professionals provides a whole spectrum of genomic and molecular biological services. These services are essential to ACC members for studying the role of specific genes in normal or abnormal cellular processes found in cancer cells and tumors. Investigators are able to observe global gene expression pattern in a sample, and genetic variability in an unaffected or tumor genome.
