Comprehensive genomics services for research scientists and clinicians
The Integrated Genomics Laboratory, or IGL, is home to shared genomics technology resources and support services for structural and functional genomics studies at OHSU. The IGL consists of three service centers: the Massively Parallel Sequencing Shared Resource, or MPSSR, the Gene Profiling Shared Resource, or GPSR, and the DNA Services Core. Under the IGL structure, core leadership and staff are able to provide efficient, coordinated support to OHSU investigators from nucleic acid extraction to data generation and - with designated institutional support – to invest time in strategic resource development and a robust infrastructure.
The Integrated Genomics Lab is located on the 5th floor of Richard Jones Hall on OHSU Marquam Hill campus.
