Association of Bimolecular Resource Facilities

UC Davis is proud to be an institutional member of the Association of Biomolecular Resource Facilities (ABRF), a global community dedicated to advancing core and research biotechnology laboratories, funding, and administration through communication, collaboration, and education. As an institutional member, UC Davis gains access to valuable resources, networking opportunities, and professional development programs tailored to enhance our research infrastructure and capabilities. If you would like to be added as an ABRF member (at no charge), contact Shelby Matthews .



Core Marketplace

The CoreMarketplace is an international directory of research cores. Its dual purpose is to increase the visibility/citability of research facilities as well as improve the reproducibility of research. The CoreMarketplace consists of three major functions: search, profile, and posting.  UC Davis encourages cores to be listed in both the UC Davis Research Core Directory and the Core Marketplace. When your facility is added to the CoreMarketplace, it will be automatically assigned a Research Resource Identifier (RRID). The RRID greatly improves your facility’s citability and visibility.


The Research Resource Identification (RRID) Initiative seeks to identify all of the different parts to research and label each one with a unique, citable identifier. This RRID, when published, links directly back to the research component cited making it easier to identify and replicate research findings. In the partnership with the RRID Initiative, each core research facility can get its own RRID tag that can link a publication citation back to its CoreMarket place listing. This makes it easier for your facility to get the credit you require to stay compliant with federal grants.

Research Core Facilities Survey Results (December 2022)

As part of the effort to understand the campus core landscape and researcher needs, the AVC Cores Working Group developed and launched an anonymous survey for the UC Davis research community, including faculty, trainees, staff, students, clinicians, and researchers. The survey was designed to solicit researcher input on the current and recent use of cores and shared facilities, including challenges, unmet needs, concerns, and comments. A copy of the full Research Cores Survey Report can be found here.
