Diabetes Research Center Cores
Animal and Metabolic Core
In partnership with the University of Hawaii, including its Center for Cardiovascular Research and College of Natural Sciences, we provide a core for the use of investigators at the University, and by special arrangement, for investigators anywhere in Hawaii. We provide murine echocardiography, blood pressure determinations, surgical procedures and phlebotomy, real-time metabolic assessment, analyses of lipoprotein fractions and subfractions in fasting serum or plasma, animal CT scans and MRIs, as well as assistance with mouse husbandry and genotyping.
Genomics and Bioinformatics Shared Resource Core
The Genomics and Bioinformatics Shared Resource (GBSR) offers a central service that uses cutting-edge and high-throughput genomic technologies combined with expert data analysis. The principal goal for the GBSR is to provide timely, affordable, high quality genomic analyses and a wide range of bioinformatic services with a fast turnaround, as well as technical and scientific consultation, collaboration and initial data interpretation. The GBSR personnel has broad expertise in molecular biology, genetics, genomics and bioinformatics, and can provide project planning, advice, and troubleshooting.
