The Genomics Shared Resource (GSR) is co-sponsored by the University of Arizona Cancer Center and the Southwest Environmental Health Science Center. The Shared Resource serves members of the funding centers by providing genomics services based on microarray, next-generation sequencing, and polymerase chain reaction (PCR) technology platforms. Applications include transcriptome expression profiling, exome sequencing, re-sequencing panels, epigenetic analysis, and quantitative real time PCR applications.

The Core serves the research community with priority given first to members of our funding centers, then to other federally funded investigators at the University of Arizona, and then all other research investigators. As part of our commitment to providing high quality genomics service, the Core has qualified as a member of the Ion Torrent Certified Service Provider Program.

The Core is supported by the University of Arizona Cancer Center (National Institutes of Health Cancer Center Support Grant P30CA023074) and the Southwest Environmental Health Sciences Center (National Institute of Environmental Health Science Center Grant ES06694).
