The objective of the Molecular Discovery Core is to provide advice, training and service in molecular IDD research, from hypothesis generation to characterization of macromolecules. This includes: genome, transcriptome, proteome and metabolome analysis; vector construction; and access to shared instrumentation, such as centrifuges and fluorescence imaging. Advice on biomolecular structure analysis also is available.
Investigators: Please remember to acknowledge your Colorado IDDRC affiliation and use of cores in all your published papers. For examples of acknowledgement statements go to For Investigators.
