Locating Core Facilities can be difficult. We provide a central repository to allow researchers and Core Facilities to more easily find each other. Researchers can quickly locate facilities that provide the services they need. Core Facilities can locate other such facilities to collaborate with and gain more users. This may help achieve sustainability.
- Allows researchers to locate resources needed for their research
- Provides a channel for facilities to collaborate
- Facilitates cores to get the traffic needed to reach sustainability
The Vermont Genetics Network, in partnership with ABRF, established the Core Marketplace database to track and explore research services and technologies that are regionally accessible. This will allow researchers to find established facilities and avoid duplicating resources that are not cost effective at their own site.
