Home GCC Shared Core Facilities

Highlighted Shared Core of the Month

The CPRIT Single Core is located within the MD Anderson Cancer Center in Houston, TX and is a CPRIT-funded single cell genomics and transcriptomics core facility. The core provides consults, services and training related the processing of tissues for single cell genomic and transcriptomic sequencing for cancer samples. Our users have two tracks available is for (1) general core services and (2) collaborative projects. All projects receive a free consultation and review initial review starting. General users can submit samples for our different assay and receive QC and preliminary analysis. The assays include Single Cell CNV, ATAC and RNA sequencing. Since the core is also aimed to educate users, it provides written protocols can be provided on request and other educational actives. These activities include the Texas Single Cell (TXSC) weekly seminar series (sponsored by the GCC) and Single Cell Genomics workshop. The TXSC series features talks from current single cell sequencing researching being performed at MD Anderson and across Texas. The Single Cell Genomics workshop cover both hands-on sample processing and basic analysis of single cell sequencing technologies. For more information, contact Anna K. Casasent, PhD AKCasasent@mdanderson.org.

Looking for a particular piece of equipment?

Did you know that the GCC has a Shared Equipment and Resource Committee (SERC) composed of the Directors/Leaders in equipment inventory and acquisition from each of the GCC institutions?  If you are looking for a particular piece of equipment, please email Suzanne Tomlinson, and the committee members will work together to try to locate it and introduce you to the PI who owns/administers it.

GCC Shared Equipment and Cores

Shared core facilities are an important benefit to members of the GCC research community.

GCC has acquired major equipment for shared use, available to Texas Medical Center researchers, thanks to the generosity, commitment and vision of philanthropic donors such as the John S. Dunn Foundation. Additionally, GCC member institutions have each designated shared core facilities within their own institutions (via a GCC inter-institutional memorandum of understanding), providing a large array of equipment available to GCC researchers at internal rates.

These leveraged shared resources enhance collaborative research, training and grant proposals and provide increased opportunities for inter-institutional cooperation and growth. (Photos welcome!) Please contact Suzanne Tomlinson, PhD, Director, GCC Research Consortia, at smtomlin@rice.edu for more information.
