We are building a first-of-its-kind core facility at the Buck Institute to provide experimental support and training in reproductive biology.
Reproductive Biology Hub
We are building a hub facility at the Buck Institute to provide experimental support and training in reproductive biology. The hub will be accessible to any lab in the world, including members of the consortium. In addition to state-of-the-art instrumentation and fee-for-service assays, the hub will provide an opportunity for investigators
to send lab members to obtain training in the techniques necessary to carry out these experiments in their home labs. By providing resources to plan and execute experiments using reproductive tissue, we hope to lower the barrier to entry and grow the field.
IT and big data are essential to advancing the field. Thus, we are building a bioinformatics core that will provide analytic tools for multi-omics projects to investigators who are part of the Consortium. To accelerate the discovery process, the
bioinformatics core will also compile and organize large datasets generated by the consortium to be made available to consortium scientists first and later to the scientific community at large.
