Roy J. Carver Center for Genomics (CCG)
The Roy J. Carver Center for Genomics (CCG) is a research and service center within the Department of Biology on the campus of the University of Iowa (UI). The center supports the research needs of investigators within the Department of Biology, other UI departments, as well as external research groups.
The CCG maintains a centralized laboratory with state-of-the-art equipment and instruments available for investigators to use in their molecular research. All faculty, postdocs, graduate students, and research staff in the Department of Biology have access to the laboratory 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. In addition, the center offers a number of specialized services.
Funding to establish and expand the center has been provided by the Roy J. Carver Charitable Trust. In addition, the CCG is supported by the Department of Biology, the College of Liberal Arts and Sciences, and by user fees. User fees are generally funded through individual researchers who are supported by competitive grants such as those from the National Science Foundation, the US Department of Energy, the National Institutes of Health, and the Roy J. Carver Charitable Trust.
