The Host Microbe Systems Biology Core (HMSB Core) is housed within the Department of Medical Microbiology & Immunology in the School of Medicine at the University of California Davis.  We provide researchers with an easily accessible, one-stop solution for all of your microbiome and gene expression analysis.  Our comprehensive sequencing services make use of the latest next-generation sequencing technologies and a novel customized suite of open source software developed in-house by one of the HMSB Core Associate Directors, Jonathan Eisen, Ph.D.  The HMSB Core performs complete start-to-finish workflows from sample processing to data analysis, eliminating the need to submit samples and data to separate facilities.
