Powerful high-throughput sequencing technology available through the Genomic Sciences Laboratory (GSL) supports CHHE researchers to conduct complete transcriptome analysis whereby both transcriptome development and abundance are examined within a single experiment. These same technologies and resources will also allow for genome-wide studies of DNA/protein interactions (ChIPseq), gene mutation analysis, SNP analysis, DNA methylation changes, RNA-seq and micro RNA analysis, eQTL analysis, Genotyping by Sequencing (GBS), and Genome Wide Association Studies (GWAS).
Bioinformatics support is provided by the CHHE’s Environmental Data Science Group (EDSG). EDSG will conduct informatics analyses of large data sets from in silico, in vitro, in vivo, and population studies to address important problems in EHS. Visualization is vital to the analysis of large datasets and multi-omic integration, and members are directed to personnel and software to generate appropriate data graphics. Bioinformatic support is provided cost-free to CHHE full members.
