Center for Genome Research and Biocomputing
Over 100 OSU faculty, all holding primary appointments in academic departments of the Colleges of Agricultural Sciences, Engineering, Forestry, Pharmacy, Science, Veterinary Medicine, or Oceanic and Atmospheric Sciences, are affiliate members of the Center. The Center was established in 1983 as a university resource to develop cell and molecular biology research. Today, the CGRB facilitates development, application and training in computationally intensive, genome-enabled research at OSU and across the state.
The CGRB functions and facilities include:
1. Staffed Core Laboratory facilities that provide a variety of services in genomics, functional genomics, imaging and genotyping;
2. Staffed biocomputing facilities with an extensive high performance computing infrastructure, which includes a managed cloud and shared resources;
3. Computational scientists and staff to facilitate implementation of a computationally intensive research program;
4. Seminar Series that features leading scientists in molecular and genomic biosciences, and frequent technology training workshops that feature cutting-edge technologies;
5. Annual Fall Conference that brings together faculty, staff and students from across OSU;
6. Coordination of the OSU Computational and Genome Biology Initiative.
