Genomics and Bioinformatics

The Genomics and Bioinformatics core lab supports genome science research by providing access to analytical expertise and state-of-the-art computational infrastructure. Core staff are also available to train junior researchers in bioinformatics techniques The lab is supported by the Kansas INBRE, a statewide research and training grant from the National Institutes of Health.
