Welcome

Welcome to the Molecular Genomics Core (MGC). It is our mission to provide UTMB researchers access to cutting-edge technologies in functional genomics. The MGC objective is not only to provide access to technologies but also our experienced staff. A central goal of the MGC is to provide high quality data in a timely fashion and excellent customer service in a collaborative spirit.

Technical support in the area of molecular biology can be accessed by contacting the Recombinant DNA Laboratory. Next generatiuon seqiencing (RNA-Seq, ChlP-Seq) can be accessed through the Next Generation Sequencing core.

The MGC is supported by Geneus, a custom Laboratory Information Management System (LIMS) that provides an easy-to-use secure interface for sample submission and data retrieval. Clients will access Geneus through LabLink, which allows a seamless integration of sample and data tracking.

To schedule an appointment or to discuss experimental design, send an email to: genomics.core@utmb.edu, or call 409-772-6349.
