The WSU Molecular Biology and Genomics Core began in the early 1990s (originally named the Laboratory for Biotechnology and Bioanalysis). This core was established as a service center to provide access to instrumentation that was too expensive for individual labs to purchase. Over the past 20 years, with the assistance of the Center for Reproductive Biology, M.J. Murdoch Charitable Trust, NIH, and others, the core lab has evolved to a state-of-the-art service facility the core lab is directed by Dr. Michael Griswold in the School of Molecular Biosciences and currently has four full-time personnel. the facilities are housed in two laboratories in the Biotechnology and Life Sciences Building (rooms 127 and 227). We have a multitude of services and instrumentation available in the fields of molecular biology, genomics, and proteomics.
