About the CGRL
The QB3 Computational Genomics Resource Laboratory (CGRL), located in 238 Koshland Hall, aims to facilitate research programs employing computational biology with
- Computational infrastructure for data analysis
- Training in analytical tools for next-generation sequence data
- Project-specific consultation on experiment design and analysis
The CGRL will coordinate with the existing QB3 centers that produces next-generation sequencing data Vincent J. Coates Genomics Sequencing Laboratory (GSL) and the Functional Genomics Laboratory (FGL) to keep ahead of new developments. Users of these sequencing facilities will have the option of seamlessly transferring data to and carrying out secondary and tertiary analysis of their data utilizing the CGRL computing infrastructure.
To equip campus researchers with state-of-the art tools and knowledge on evolving trends in computational biology and bioinformatics, the CGRL will organize seminars by leading scientists in the fields. In addition there will be short-duration classes on specific methods and topics given by experts in the subject. The CGRL will also make efforts to provide one-on-one consultation on specific projects.
