Onco-Genomics Shared Resource - OGSR



The Onco-Genomics Shared Resource (OGSR) is a state-of-the-art open-core facility located in the Papanicolaou Cancer Research Building (PAP) on the University of Miami, Miller School of Medicine campus. The OGSR provides Sylvester investigators access to a wide range of technologies and services for the study of the genomics and epigenetics of cancer. Principle service areas encompass: 1) extensive services for next generation sequencing (NGS), 2) single cell genomics 3) gene expression assays and molecular quantitation, 4) services for sample extraction and QC.

The OGSR is a component of the NCI Sylvester Cancer Center Support Grant (P30 CA240139).
