The VVRC Gene Analysis Core encompasses funding for VANTAGE = Vanderbilt Technologies for Advanced Genomics; and VANGARD = Vanderbilt Technologies for Advanced Genomics Analysis and Research Design. VANTAGE performs a wide array of services related to DNA and RNA which are organized into four basic categories: Biobanking, Genotyping, Microbiome analysis, and Next-Gen sequencing, including: ChIP sequencing, whole genome sequencing, whole exome sequencing, and RNA sequencing. VANGARD is housed within the Center for Quantitative Sciences. VANGARD operates in conjunction with VANTAGE, providing experimental design, quality assessment of data, analysis and results interpretation, and data storage to investigators.
