The new Pfizer-University of Granada-Junta de Andalucía Centre for Genomics and Oncological Research (GENYO) has been designed as a space of excellence for research on the genetic basis of diseases, including cancer, as well as on the influence of genetic inheritance in the body’s response to certain drugs [+]
Genyo develops its scientific activity around two main areas:
The main goal of the Genomics and Genotyping Unit is to provide support to the investigation of the Center, and to support the work of the Research Groups of the entities making up the Center, such as Pfizer, University of Granada, and Junta de Andalusia (Andalusian Regional Government).
Within the last few years omics technologies have revolutionized biomedical research. Techniques such as Next generation sequencing, DNA microarrays, proteomics or metabolomics are allowing researchers to analyze biological processes from a global perspective and have proven to be very useful tools to characterize molecular mechanisms associated with different diseases.
Flow Cytometry Unit
The main task of the Flow Cytometry and Sorting Unit of GENYO is to provide technical support on cytometry to the research groups of the Center and to other entities outside the Center.
Microscopy and Molecular Imaging Unit
The main task of the Microscopy and Molecular Imaging Unit is to provide technical support in the area of confocal laser microscopy and laser capture microdissection, both to the research groups of the Center and outside entities.
Cell Culture Unit
The main objective of the Cell Culture Unit is to provide support to research in GENYO, and to facilitate the task of researchers of the Center, as well as to provide assistance and services in this work area.
