The UC Davis Genome Center integrates experimental and computational approaches to address key problems at the forefront of genomics. The Center is housed in a new research building with state-of-the-art computational and laboratory facilities. The Center has recruited 15 research faculty and established five technology cores that will serve the whole campus. The Center has made major investments in state-of-the-art instrumentation and has recruited experienced staff to manage and run each core. There are five service cores, DNA Technologies, Expression Analysis, Proteomics, Metabolomics, and Bioinformatics. Additional details can be found at http://genomecenter.ucdavis.edu.
The proteomic core, which I head, has a staff of six individuals, including two Ph.D. scientists. For high throughput identification characterization of proteins and peptides necessary for your proposed project, the proteomics core has at its disposal a state of the art Thermo Electron LTQ-FT Ultra hybrid Fourier Transform Ion Cyclotron tandem mass spectrometer connected to a Waters Acuity Ultra High Pressure Nano UPLC, two Thermo Electron LTQ tandem mass spectrometers connected to a Michrom Paradigm HPLCâ??s, a Agilent 6330 ion trap mass spectrometer connected to a Agilent NanoLC-CHIP interface and a new TSQ Vantage Tripe Quadrupole mass spectrometer for quantitative multiple reaction monitoring (MRM) experiments. In addition, the Genome Center has 2 medium size computer clusters and one large 400 core cluster that we can access for data analysis as needed. For More information Please See
