The Integrated Genomic Shared Resource

This Shared Resource has 2 sites on the CWRU campus. The Gene Expression & Genotyping Facility is housed in the Wolstein Research Bldg [Rm 3-401] and the Genomics Core resides in the Wood Building [W106].

All services will continue to be offered at both sites. Hours of operation will be significantly reduced. Staff will only be present when there are samples to processed. We have instituted a rotating schedule to ensure appropriate social distancing and any aspects of protocols and Core function that can be completed remotely are being carried out by Staff from home.

Users should communicate via email or phone to discuss upcoming projects and sample drop off. Provide us with lead time when you are delivering samples, if possible. This will help ensure that Staff is present to receive samples and that reagents are available for sample processing.

Users may experience a modest increase in turnaround time due to reduced on-site Staff time and ordering delays. However, given the reduction in experiments across the School of Medicine and sample batching, at this time we do not anticipate a major effect on our typical turnaround times.

We have been adopted a policy of wiping down all work surfaces, light switches, door knobs, etc, multiple times though out each Operator’s work shift. Additionally, hand sanitizer is provided at the sample drop-off sites.

Integrated Genomics

The mission of the Integrated Genomics Shared Resource (SR) is to deliver a comprehensive spectrum of genomic technologies to the scientific community. 

The Integrated Genomics SR is comprised of four distinct components: the Gene Expression & Genotyping Facility [Wolstein Research Building (CWRU)], two Next Gen Sequencing Facilities [Wood Bldg (CWRU) and Lerner Research Institute (CC)] and a dedicated Analytics Unit [Wolstein Research Building (CWRU)]. Some services are uniquely found at a single site, while other services can be obtained at multiple locations to better accommodate users.
