Network of IDeA Funded Core Laboratories

founded


NICLweb.org


Core Facility Database


Initial
organizational meeting
held at the 2009
Annual Meeting of the
Association of
Biomolecular Resource Core Facilities (ABRF)
meeting in Memphis in February


Positive feedback from NCRR folks


Not much follow
-
through…


But another organizational “track” planned for

New
core facilities collaborations
popping up:


NICL, in part, an outgrowth of
Northeast Regional
Life Sciences Core Directors


Midwest Association of Core Directors
(wwwMWACD.org) organized at ABRF 2010


Prior to NM Bioinformatics Summit, a
“western
states” INBRE/COBRE bioinformatics cores
meeting


All planning or have some kind of
registry


Potential for significant overlap and most will not
support a full feature set
