USF Genomics represents a consortium of active research programs from different colleges and campuses of USF. Our projects integrate modern genomic approaches to understand and help develop solutions for some of the major challenges affecting global health and especially our Florida community. USF Genomics research projects are naturally interdisciplinary with studies that cross many boundaries of traditional scientific fields, integrating bioscience approaches in experimental and environmental research with computation biology. Opportunities exist for new graduate students to join well-funded research programs to study disease causes from underlying drug resistance and virulence genes in pathogenic organisms to changes of microbial communities within our bodies to the marine environment.
The Genomics Program is offering
hands-on training in Illumina RNA sequencing in two separate intensive training
courses. The first 4-day course consists of hands-on RNA sequencing
training in the GHIDR-IDRB labs and will cover the entire process from planning
to sample preparation. The second 5-day intensive training course, taking
place in GHIDR conference room, will cover data acquisition and analysis.
See the flyers for training and registration information.
