Life Sciences Resources
Hubbard Center for Genome Studies
The Hubbard Center for Genome Studies leads the research at UNH in comparative and environmental genomics, with a special emphasis on novel model species.
- technical assistance by constructing BAC and cDNA libraries
- services in high-throughput DNA sequencing, fragment analysis and analysis of gene expression
- expertise in biocomputing and database services to support these activities
- education and training in genomics through a seminar series, short courses, lab rotations for graduate students and the distribution of protocols
Biomolecular Interaction Technologies Center (BTIC)
BTIC is an NSF-sponsored Industry/University Cooperative Research Center. Members include major firms engaged in biopharmaceutical research and analytical instrumentation companies.
Its 3-fold mission is to:
- provide advanced methods for the analysis of biomolecular interactions
- transfer technologies through training, consultation and collaboration
- provide an environment in which academic and industrial researchers can interact
BITC also funds research by faculty, researchers and students from UNH, and other institutions.
A Request for Proposals for research grants is issued annually.
Life Sciences Shared Resources @ Dartmouth College
Norris Cotton Cancer Center provides a portfolio of Life Sciences Shared Resources: specialized equipment and instrumentation, as well as services and centralized consultation to support the application of these Shared Resources to research.
These resources are available to UNH researchers at the same cost as Dartmouth faculty would pay.
The Shared Resources portfolio includes:
National Center for Genome Analysis Support (NCGAS)
NCGAS provides genome assembly and other analytical support (bioinformatics, computation, optimized software, and storage) for NSF-funded researchers undertaking genome science critical to biological discovery.
Qualifying NSF-funded research projects can have access to NCGAS services - typically at no cost - simply by filling out a request form that documents its status.
National Center for Advancing Translational Sciences (NCATS) - Expertise & Resources
NCATS staff are experts in many different fields relevant to translational research and science policy, from small molecules to human subjects protections. The Center offers tools, technologies and in-kind support to help researchers translate basic scientific knowledge into interventions that improve human health, including:
Pre-Clinical Research Toolbox: Resources and software tools re:
- Small Molecules, Compounds & Probes
- Informatics Tools
Clinical Research Toolbox: Clinical research tools that facilitate trial design, patient recruitment and partnerships for commercialization
