Environmental Genomics Service Facility (HSPH)

Director: Christiani, David, M.D.

Summary:

The aims of the EGS are: to assist Center investigators in preparing genomic DNA from blood/buccal swabs collected in their human population studies. This activity involves assistance in the proper collection, extraction, concentration, quality testing and hand or robotic plating for candidate gene and even Genome-Wide studies of gene-environment interaction; to assist Center investigators in creating a genomic DNA biorepository for DNA for genotyping and for epigenetics studies; to assist investigators in obtaining efficient genotyping and epigenetic services either in-house or through partner organizations in the Harvard system; and to assist Center investigators in selection of SNP's, haplotypes, genotyping platforms and for environmental genetic and epigenetic studies of human populations.
