The UC Davis Genome Center was founded at the University of California, Davis, as the result of a major campus-wide initiative in genomics and bioinformatics. It is part of a broader campus commitment to build on existing strengths in the life sciences and to establish an internationally recognized program in genomics research. The Center serves as the antenna for genomics technologies for the entire campus. Five technology service cores have been established in Bioinformatics, Metabolomics, Proteomics, Expression Analysis and DNA Technologies. The Genome Center faculty provide leadership to each of these areas to ensure that the service cores remain state-of-the-art. The Center provides research space and administrative support for its 17 faculty in the 211,000 sq. ft. GBSF building that is shared with Biomedical Engineering and several School of Medicine Departments and includes a modern mouse vivarium and a small-animal imaging facility as well as the five genomics-related service cores. Over 40 faculty from the School of Medicine, School of Veterinary Medicine, College of Agricultural and Environmental Sciences, College of Biological Sciences, Division of Mathematics and Physical Sciences and College of Engineering are Genome Center Members that have genomics-related interests but are located outside of the GBSF.
The UC Davis Genome Center integrates experimental and computational approaches to address key problems at the forefront of genomics. Recruitments are designed both to build on existing strengths as well as to address currently unmet needs and opportunities. We have recruited 16 faculty over the past 4 years. The research of the Center focuses on one of the major challenges in biology, the phenotypic consequences of natural genetic variation. It emphasizes comparative functional genomics through the integration of multiple levels of investigation from DNA sequence analysis, protein structure-function relationships, systems biology, and population genetics. Wet lab recruitments emphasize the recruitment of technology-driven biologists with broad research interests. Wet lab experimentation is closely integrated with bioinformatics research. Recruitments made in bioinformatics likewise share a common interest in the application of bioinformatics to experimental data.
