The Basic Science Program provides dedicated/embedded support to NCI CCR laboratories that carry out investigator-initiated, hypothesis-driven biomedical research. The BSP CCR Genetics Core (BCGC) was formed in response to specific research support needs of CCR Principal Investigators. The BCGC has unique characteristics that have resulted in a high degree of utility to the it’s customers. The BCGC operates using a comprehensive “from carbon to silicon” approach that encompasses the ability to organize studies/establish cohorts, collect and process samples, generate genetic data and this interpret data and take part in publishing manuscripts. More info about the BCGC can be found at: Application of inherent expertise and a commitment to being responsive places the BCGC in a position to guide work by anticipating/heading-off issues and solving problems in real-time from within projects. SAIC-F and the BSP coordinate, and inter-digitate, BCGC support with other SAIC-F research support capabilities such as the ISP and ATP in the cases where we can leverage resident expertise to optimize BCGC support. The BCGC also draws on expertise present in the SAIC-F run Core Genotyping Facility.
