Translational Sciences Shared Resource

The UTHSC Translational Sciences Shared Resource will conduct project management in genomics, metabolomics, and microbiome studies for UTHSC center for cancer research members primarily for samples banked through the UTHSC Biorepository. We direct projects through assisting with study design, optimizing sample collection and processing for DNA or RNA isolation, confirming quality control, and assisting with planning for whole genome sequencing (WGS), RNA sequencing (RNAseq), etc. The Translational Sciences Shared Resource uses LabVantage laboratory inventory management system (LIMS) to track and manage each sample from receiving to processing to data analysis. Informatics support is available. Lastly, we assist in the development of novel platforms (metabolomics, single cell sequencing, flow, etc.).
