Welcome to the UC Davis School of Medicine Host Microbe Systems Biology Core

The Host-Microbe Systems Biology (HMSB) Core offers complete start-to-finish services for 16S and 18S phylogenetic studies, and gene expression profiling by Affymetrix GeneChip microarrays and RNAseq analysis. HMSB Core services include nucleic acid extraction, library preparation for Next-Generation Sequencing (NGS), and functional analysis of NGS and microarray data sets. We utilize state-of-the-art open source software platforms as well as customized scripts and programs developed in house under the direction of the HMSB Core Associate Director, Jonathan Eisen, Ph.D. The HMSB Core is uniquely designed to provide researchers with easily accessible, customized, and cost-effective resources for integrating analyses of microbial community structure and host-microbe interactions in health and disease.
