Introduction to the site

The GDSC is a research centre investigating the responses of cells to genome damage and their relationship to cancer and other aspects of human disease. The purpose-built laboratories, funded by the Joint Infrastructure Fund (JIF), the Wolfson Foundation and the University, are located adjacent to the School of Life Sciences, and provide a dynamic and collaborative environment for carrying out state-of -the-art research. Much of this research is supported by the Medical Research Council via a Centre Grant and Programme Grants. The Centre currently houses twenty research groups.

Getting Help

The way you get support for IT has changed. To report a problem or get help use the services provided by ITS which can be found on the ITS home page.

Purchasing IT equipment

You should now purchase all IT equipment through IT services. Equipment purchased in this way will benefit from support through ITS. Details can be found on the ITS website.

Networked Resources

The Centre has a group directory (mapped as the G: drive on Windows workstations), containing files that can be accessed by all GDSC members. The sub-directory 'genome_all' contains:

  • Image Resources - a collection of Powerpoint files with useful images that can be freely used
  • Manuals and Guides
  • MassSpec Proteomics
  • Statistical analysis: points of significance - Nature Methods
  • Risk Assessments
