Host-Microbial Analytic and Repository Core

Director: Wu, Gary., MD


The mission of H-MARC is to provide services that will enhance the analysis of both host and microbial biological processes as well as facilitate translation into the clinical arena via human subject research.





  • Biostatistics and Bioinformatics ( Data analysis service )

    Biostatistical support for the development of study design and data analysis is available through the Penn Center for Clinical Epidemiology and Biostatistics (CCEB).

  • Genomic Services ( Material analysis service )

    Services provided by the Penn Next Generation Sequencing Core and the Penn Molecular Profiling Facility are subsidized by the Core, $1000/investigator/year.

  • Human Biorepository ( Material storage service )

    This biorepository of human digestive tissues has two components, 1) Human RNA Source Bank: A previously established bank of frozen human tissues, many with RNA already isolated, and 2) Annotated Clinical Tissue Bank: Biospecimens with robust clinical metadata from prospectively consented human subjects are archived and tracked with 2-D barcodes logged into the LabVantage Laboratory Information Management System (LIMS).
