Welcome to the Scripps Genome Center
The Scripps Genome Center, part of the Marine Biology Research Division
of the Scripps Institution of Oceanography, is working
to integrate the rapidly expanding world of marine genomics
into mainstream marine biology research. We provide guidance, resources
and access to cutting-edge bioinformatics tools.
Our mission is to execute the computation and expert analysis required to
interpret each microbial genome in its environmental, ecological and
evolutionary context. We strive to achieve a sound and complete
interpretation of every genome. Our central aim is to create partnerships
between computational and experimental biologists. We are helping marine
biologists ask questions at a scale unavailable before.
in the laboratory include the automated annotation of
eukaryotic and microbial genome sequence data, multi-genome comparison,
environmental sequence comparison, and prediction of horizontal gene transfer.
