The Genomics Shared Resource, or GSR, is a core facility which provides DNA, RNA, next-generation sequencing, and bioinformatics to the UC Davis Health System and beyond.

The mission of the GSR is to serve the UC Davis Comprehensive Cancer Center by providing centralized, cost-effective, and comprehensive expertise and service in the broad area of genomics research. This includes virtually all types of genome-wide profiling, including transcriptome profiling (RNA-Seq, small RNA-Seq, SLAM-Seq), epigenomics (ChIP-Seq, CUT&RUN, Hi-C), variant/mutation analyses (whole-exome and genome sequencing). single-cell sequencing, and spatial transcriptomics. The GSR specializes in helping investigators develop, implement, and troubleshoot custom and novel genomics applications and provides extensive data analysis and integrative bioinformatics support as well as a variety of educational opportunities. Taken together, the GSR offers a complete solution for integrative and functional molecular profiling.


This resource is funded by the UC Davis Comprehensive Cancer Center Support Grant (CCSG) awarded by the National Cancer Institute (NCI P30CA093373). Publications that have utilized facility resources, services or scientific data generated by the resource should acknowledge the resource or the assistance provided by resource staff and cite the NCI CCSG. An electronic copy of the publication should also be sent to the resource directors.
