Core Descriptions


The Research Core units will serve different projects of the Program. These units will be a resource available for grant-supported research projects and protocols related to the overall goals of the participating laboratories. A Core Committee made up of Drs. Williams and Rosen (Core Directors) will consult weekly to review Core progress and procedures. The reviews will address experimental design, data management, and budgetary effects on the Core units. The use of the Core budgetary resources will be at the discretion of the Core director. Any redistribution of funds will require the approval of the Program director. The use of the Cores is summarized in Table 3.

The Neurohistology Core (Core A) will process mouse brains for inclusion in the Mouse Brain Library (MBL). The Genotyping and Mouse Colony Core will provide genotypes of G10 animals that will be added to the MBL. In addition, all brains to be processed by Core A will be per fused in this Core.
