The Institute for Integrative Genome Biology at the University of California, Riverside bridges theoretical and experimental researchers in the life sciences and other campus based centers. Our membership is drawn from many schools and departments including bioinformatics, plant biology, chemistry, biomedical sciences, and engineering.
The IIGB fulfills its mission through three main areas:
Our Research and Grant Collaborations – We harness our scientific diversity to explore new and imaginative research avenues.
Our University and Community Outreach – Through our seminar series, symposia, and on-campus programs, we bring our researchers together to share knowledge and ideas and inspire new connections.
Our Core Facilities – Our 1,000 sq. ft. suite of Instrumentation Facilities serves as a centralized, shared-use resource for faculty, staff and students, offering advanced tools in bioinformatics, genomics, microscopy, proteomics, and metabolomics/lipidomics.
We apply our collective efforts to grow and engage the next generation of scientists, and we broaden this mission to include our responsibility to our surrounding communities. We actively seek new opportunities to introduce scientific research techniques to students in our nearby public schools, with the ultimate goal of creating a pipeline from grade and middle schools to college and graduate school.
We invite you to join us in this mission.
Our Membership includes over 100 physical and life scientists, engineers, biologists, computer scientists and statisticians in 16 Departments across 4 UCR Colleges and Schools
