Metabolomic services require good communication and planning between basic biologists, clinicians, metabolomic specialists, biochemists, and statisticians. Our administrative core with Director This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it, our project manager will be happy to consult you. We will advise which metabolomic platforms might give the best answers to your questions, how many biological replicate samples should be taken into a study, and how many parameters and time points should be used. 
For data acquisition and data processing combined, hourly staff recharge rates and instrument charges combined cost roughly per platform $58 per sample for UC-researchers, $89 per sample for other non-profit academic researchers and $105 per sample for industry researchers. However, individual projects may differ, so please ask for detailed estimates. In addition, statistics and biochemical interpretations may require more time. Please ask for these services specifically!

Systems Biology and Genomics data

We are also looking forward to consulting with you, which other types of data might be important for your study, from physiological endpoints to genomic interactions. The Bejing Genome Institute has chosen UC Davis as a U.S. West Coast hub to acquire genomic data; if interested, please contact our This email address is being protected from spambots.

The UC Davis Genome Center also offers services for systems-biology type data that will help interpret metabolomics data through its genomics coretranscriptomics coreproteomics core, and bioinformatics core. All these services are available by approved recharge rates as fee-for-service units for internal and external academic researchers as well as for industry partners.

For mouse biology researchers, UC Davis has established the Mouse Metabolic Phenotyping Center which partners with the West Coast Metabolomics Center. Please see the specific services offered for researchers using mouse models!
