Our Mission

The Applied Genomics Technology Center (AGTC) was established in 1998 as a centralized resource for Wayne State University researchers. More specifically, to provide genomics expertise and state-of-the-art equipment in an effort to enhance grant proposals, research, and publications. The facilities personnel are highly experienced in a wide variety of genomics technologies and are committed to providing affordable, quality services to Wayne State University investigators, as well as those outside of the University. Our ultimate goal is to encourage collaborative relationships between AGTC personnel, genomics researchers, and global biotechnology companies in order to keep the facility most current in the research and development of innovative genomic techniques.

About The Center

Housed on the ground floor of the C.S. Mott Center for Human Growth and Development, the AGTC is a state-of-the-art, fee-for-service genomics center that provides a wide range of genomic technologies to the medical research community. In addition to instrumentation, AGTC personnel are available to work with investigators to optimize experiments to meet their scientific goals.
