Analytical Chemistry Instrumentation Facility
A campus-wide facility that consists of four components, Mass Spectrometry, X-ray Crystallography, Nuclear Magnetic Resonance (NMR) Spectroscopy and Optical Spectroscopy.
Bioinformatics Core Facility
The Bioinformatics Core provides state-of-the-art resources for large-scale comparative genomics, data mining, systems modeling, and drug discovery to enable scientists from different experimental and computational areas to master the bioinformatic and cheminformatic aspects of their research independently and proficiently.
Institute for Integrative Genome Biology
A state-of-the-art, 10,000 square-foot shared-use facility providing instrumentation suites in microscopy and imaging, bioinformatics, proteomics, and DNA sequencing and molecular biology.
Central Facility for Advanced Microscopy and Microanalysis
The Central Facility for Advanced Microscopy and Microanalysis (CFAMM) is an universal research, service, and consulting laboratory for microscopic characterization of organic and inorganic materials, biological tissue and minerals applying electron beam techniques.
Genomics Core Instrumentation Facility
A part of the UCR Institute for Integrative Genome Biology, the facility supports campus research with tools for handling genomic and cDNA libraries, DNA sequencing, genotyping, and gene expression studies.
Microscopy and Imaging Core Facility
Confocal microscopy is now the standard for optical images in journal publications. The Microscopy Core facility offers the systems and training needed to generate the sharpest images from the widest range of samples and staining techniques.
Plant Transformation Research Core
A state-of-the-art facility helps UCR researchers who are investigating genes important in metabolic, physiological and developmental processes. We have experience in working with in vitro plant tissue culture and micropropagation, molecular biology and plant genetic transformation techniques.
Proteomics Core Facility
In the Proteomics Core, state-of-the-art mass spectrometers such as Q-TOF (nano-ESI) and Q-STAR (MALDI) permit unprecedented sensitivity and accuracy in identifying protein sequences and their abundance. These technologies permit the Proteomics Core to support researchers in understanding molecular details such as protein modifications and components of protein complexes.
Stem Cell Core Facility
The UCR Stem Cell Core Facility provides training, technical assistance, and services for labs conducting stem cell research. The facility has ~4,000 sq ft of laboratory space with state-of-the-art equipment. It is outfitted with three cell culture rooms (Biosafety Level II), two microscopy rooms, an analytical room for molecular biology, a room for flow cytometry, a computer work station area for analysis, an equipment room, a supply room for the sale of consumables and culture necessities, a conference room and a foyer for educational and outreach purposes. Personalized or class training in stem cell culture is offered.
