UA Functional Genomics Core

UA Functional Genomics Core

The Functional Genomics Core (FGC) is integrated with the Arizona Center for Drug Discovery, providing resources for investigators conducting research in molecular biology to run live cell, biochemical and other assays. The FGC specializes in conducting high-throughput drug/compound screens. RNAi screens, yeast/microbial deletion library screens, and the automation of repetitive molecular biological protocols for the purpose of network analysis, drug and target discovery. Laboratory equipment is also available for general (low-throughput) use. If you would like to add your research to ACDD's portfolio, complete a project proposal form and submit to Jamie McKay (
