Short History

The Bioinformatics Core Facility was established in part through grants from the EPSCoR program of the National Science Foundation and the Biomedical Resource Infrastructure Network program of the National Institutes of Health. Currently, NO fees are being charged for server access and only minimal fees are charged for  consultation thanks to strong institutional support and the Department of Biochemistry and Molecular Biology. Campus investigators making substantial use of the facility are asked to include partial future funding for the facility in their grant proposals.

The Center is a service to the OSU community and we do NOT MAKE a PROFIT. By allowing us to do your analysis, you get work done for the same price as if you did it yourself. In the meantime, your lab members are free to perform other experiments and tasks. It's a win-win for most groups.

Current and Past Support:

  • INBRE (July 1, 2004 to June 30, 2009):NIH Director Elias Zerhouni and Congressman Ernest Istook visited Oklahoma City to announce the awarding of over $17 million to Oklahoma over five years to support the Oklahoma IdeA Network of Biomedical Research Excellence. The program focuses mainly on research facilitation at primarily undergraduate institutions. Part of this facilitation requires an integrated network of bioinformatics facilities dedicated to supporting research in functional genomics. Partial support for our facility is included in the award which began July 1, 2004
  • BRIN (September 1, 2001 to June 30, 2004)
  • COBRE (September 1, 2000 to June 30, 2004)
