Center Member and Microbiome Theme Leader, Dr. Arul Jayaraman, spearheaded the establishment of the Integrated Metabolomics Analysis Core (IMAC) at Texas A&M in College Station. IMAC received funding from the Texas A&M Research Development Fund (RDF) in August of 2015. The core facility will establish a needed center for metabolomics and small molecule research on campus and will be housed in the Protein Chemistry Laboratory (Biochemistry & Biophysics Building). This core will focus on service and advanced methods development for investigators. Proposed capabilities include LC/MS instrumentation for untargeted metabolomics, LC/MS and GC/MS for targeted metabolite analysis and quantitation, compound discovery, and data analysis. The core will be accessible to all Texas A&M faculty and Center Members.
More details to follow soon.
