Established in 2003, the UC Davis Genome Center uses state-of-art-technologies to understand how the heritable genetic information of diverse organisms function in health and disease. The combination of cutting-edge research facilities, diverse service cores, and talented staff make the Genome Center a world class facility for genomics research and training.
Research that makes a difference
A sample of questions being addressed by the UC Davis Genome Center faculty and their collaborators:
- How do variations in the human genome affect the risks of diseases such as cancer, coronary artery disease, and autism?
- Do infection, diet, or stress serve as environmental triggers of Type 1 diabetes?
- What novel, useful organisms will be discovered by sequencing microbes from extreme environments?
- Can characterization of the small molecules in algae lead to new biofuels?
- How can we control diseases of important food crops?
- How can plants be modified to increase their productivity and quality?
- What changes can we make to proteins to enhance their performance?
- Can we model and predict life’s basic processes?
- How can we glean useful information from vast datasets?
