The CGP has facilities and equipment to support the research, teaching and training missions for each of the four Cores. These are located at various sites on the Yale campus and most are shared by all the Cores and other researchers at Yale.
The prime teaching, training and seminar activities of CGP take place in the laboratories and classrooms of the Department of Molecular Cellular and Developmental Biology (MCDB) (Kline Biology Tower, Osborn Memorial Laboratories), the Department of Molecular Biophysics and Biochemistry (MB&B) (Bass Center and Gibbs Research Laboratory) and the Department of Ecology and Environmental Biology (Environmental Science Center).
Many of the Functional Genomics and Proteomics resources are located on Science Hill in these buildings. KBT houses equipment for high throughput DNA and protein production, liquid handling systems, 2 arrayers including a Virtex contact printer, scanners. A new LC MS/MS spec will be added. Most of the plant molecular and genomics facilities are in OML including growth chambers, microscopes with digital optics including a laser capture microscope and other equipment to support microarray research and bioinformatics for sample tracking and analysis. A high throughput sequencing facility is located in ESC. The Chemical Genomics Core facility is currently being set up in KBT and will have a small molecule screening core for molecular and cell based assays.
The Bioinformatics Core has components on the North, Central and South Campus areas. Bass and Gibbs, on the North campus, house the genomics-computing laboratory. It houses desktop computers, servers, and shared resources that are interconnected using gigabit Ethernet technologies, which provide a high-speed infrastructure for them. CGP is also associated with the Core computing laboratory of the Yale Center for Structural Biology and these resources are used by CGP.
