Goals and AimsOur goal is to establish a new Research Cluster to serve as a hub of intellectual activity to build innovativeenvironmental genomics into the EHSRC research portfolio and to serve as a resource that will facilitate thetransfer of knowledge, strategy and techniques to junior investigators beginning new programs andestablished investigators ready to incorporate genomics into existing EHSRC investigations. We will takeadvantage of successful efforts already in place on our campus with investigators who have a long standingexperience of genomics/genetics as well as the capability to provide leadership and guidance.The primary goal in building an environmental genomics research capability is to take advantage of thedevelopments in both laboratory techniques and analytical advances to provide a setting in whichinvestigators can add genetics/genomics to new or ongoing research programs. The initial publication ofhuman genome sequence in 2000 has been followed by a series of ever more startling developments thatprovide opportunities for individual and population based studies incorporating genetics on a scale thatexceeds even the most positive views of just a few years ago. DMA sequencing capabilities, geneexpression analysis, proteomics and genotype analysis are now all affordable on a genome scale to evenmodest size laboratory groups.
