Welcome to the Heflin Center for Genomic Sciences
|Upcoming Events - Register online for upcoming events sponsored by the Heflin Center|
|Genomics Core Laboratories (GCL)|
|The GCL provides Next Generation Sequence analysis, whole genome and targeted gene expression analysis, high- and low-throughput whole genome and custom genotyping, whole genome methylation analysis, and standard Sanger sequencing analysis to UAB investigators as well as individuals outside of the UAB system.
|Section for Statistical Genetics (SSG)|
|The BSGP provides statistical, computational, bioinformatic, and epidemiological support to UAB investigators through education, original research and collaboration on biomedical research requiring statistical genetic support.|
|Proteomics and Mass Spectrometry (MS) has become an analytical technique that is vital to the research of both basic science and clinically-based investigators. The introduction of soft ionization techniques (electrospray ionization, ESI; matrix-assisted laser desorption ionization, MALDI) have tranformed the application of MS.
|UAB Personalized Medicine is intended to serve as a centerpiece for development of an integrated research, educational, and clinical program. The major goals are to:implement genomic and proteomic tests for risk assessment, diagnosis, and pharmacogenetic analysis and provide decision-support tools at the point of care; strategically deploy whole genome sequencing approaches to gene discovery and diagnosis, paving the way towards routine use of genome sequencing in clinical care; provide education to clinicians and investigators on genomic and proteomic approaches in medicine; and monitor outcomes and conduct studies of efficacy and cost-effectiveness.
