Genomics Innovation Hub

The Genomics Innovation Hub is a unique resource that complements the services provided by the BRC Genomics Facility.

Working on a collaborative model (as opposed to fee-for-service), the protocol and method development by early adopters pave the way for larger-scale production services.

infographics describing the GIH model

The Genomics Innovation Hub (GIH) is an alternative model to the fee-for-service core facility model. GIH is a collaborative environment for technology development. GIH functions lilke a Genomics Makerspace at Cornell where Cornell researchers bring their ideas, and participate directly in their project. GIH provides custom reagents, equipment, and expert staff. GIH will produce know-how and toolkits that will become shared resources for the community. Ideas and solutions created a GIH can be exchanged with other "biotechnology makerspace" at other universities. This can eventually evolve into a network of collaborative facilities, all of which exchanging information and know-how.
