Molecular Biology and Genetics Core

The Molecular Biology and Genetics Core of the DRTC has been in operation since 1977 with a major emphasis on molecular biology and recently genetics. This Core helps independently funded investigators with an interest in diabetes mellitus and other metabolic disorders to clone, sequence and characterize cDNAs and genes of interest. This Core provide research tools and expertise to enable investigators to discover how genetic variation in diabetes genes leads to hyperglycemia.
