About Genomics

The Genomics Shared Resource is a state-of-the-art genomics facility dedicated to providing the latest relevant research tools at low cost. The primary goal of the Resource is to facilitate high-impact cancer research by SCI members by providing genetic and genomic-based tools. This goal is accomplished by delivering unencumbered, comprehensive and cost-effective access to cutting-edge genomics technologies and all the services, expertise and scientific support necessary to utilize these technologies to further cancer research.   

Major GSR technologies and services include:

  • High-throughput sequencing
  • Microarray-based analysis
  • Real-time quantitative PCR
  • Multiplex single-molecule analysis

Expert guidance with the use of each technology is also provided throughout the entire experimental process, including guidance with experimental design, data analysis, data archiving and publication.

The resources of the Stanford Functional Genomics Facility (SFGF), Protein and Nucleic Acid Facility (PAN), the Genome Sequencing Service Center (GSSC) and Genetics Bioinformatics Service Center (GBSC) have combined under central leadership to provide SCI members with integrated services.
