The training institutions serve as hosts for technologically advanced core laboratories in bioinformatics, structural and functional proteomics and functional genomics. The Bioinformatics Core includes state of the art bioinformatics capabilities at the University of Nebraska at Omaha, College of Information Science and Technology. As part of the Bioinformatics Core, INBRE provides additional support to the McGoogan Library of Medicine at the University of Nebraska Medical Center for the purchase of electronic subscriptions to major biomedical journals. Functional and Structural Proteomics Cores are located at the University of Nebraska Medical Center and Creighton University Medical Center. The Functional Genomics Core is housed at the University of Nebraska Medical Center. The Imaging Core is at Creighton University Medical Center. Support for these core laboratories includes salary support for technical personnel, major equipment purchases and operating supplies. Core laboratories are available for the use of all participants in the network and INBRE support for these core laboratories also helps to make these services available to all investigators throughout the state.
