Vanderbilt Technologies for Advanced Genomics Analysis and Research Design (VANGARD) is a research service core with administrative oversight from the VUMC Office of Research, as well as scientific and technical direction provided by the Center for Quantitative Sciences. VANGARD's mission is to standardize a genomics data pipeline for use across VUMC and allow investigators to leverage the opportunities provided by next-generation sequencing and other genomics technologies.

We have many years of experience in developing novel methods for next-generation sequencing analysis, and also in collaborating with inside and outside researchers for data interpretation1-24. VANGARD implements best practices in providing standard analysis for RNA-seq, DNA-seq, ChIP-seq, and GRO/PRO-seq data. We care about your data as much as you do.
