Genome Research Division Cores:
The Genome Research Core (GRC) is a combination of three sub-units - genomics, sequencing, and genome editing that can offer a full suite of services as well as access to shared equipment for individual use.
The Research Informatics Core (RIC) at the University of Illinois-Chicago (UIC) provides advanced computing and statistical expertise to support the analytic activities related to genetics, genomics, transcriptomics, epigenomics, metagenomics, metabolomics, and proteomics for the UIC and Chicago-area research community, as well as supporting and coordinating inter-disciplinary research initiatives. RIC aids researchers with the management, integration, and contextual analysis of data, provides training on tools, databases, and best practices, and supports grant activities.
Our mission is to provide researchers with a single facility where they can access a comprehensive range of resources and services for gene transfer purposes. The Core constructs, purifies, and titers custom recombinant adenovirus, adeno-associated virus, and lentivirus.
