Core Summary

The Pan Omics & Data Science (PODS) Core provides comprehensive and innovative support for members of the Michigan Center on Lifestage Environmental Exposures and Disease (M-LEEaD). We also support M-LEEaD pilot grant recipients. The PODS Facility Core services include assistance with study design, sample collection and preparation, data analyses, results integration and interpretation, advanced visualizations, and dissemination for a broad range of omics-based studies, including integration with clinical/ translational data. Specific omics approaches supported by the PODS Core include genomic assays (WGS, SNP arrays), RNA-seq (bulk and single-cell), microRNA expression, DNA methylation assays (BeadChip, ERRBS, WGBS, meDIP-seq), DNA hydroxymethylation, ATAC-seq (bulk and single-cell), ChIP-seq, adductomics, and microbiome profiling. We also provide support for downstream analyses such as pathway analyses, multi-omics data integration, and predictions using machine learning.
