Penn State will be using a new financial system for the 2020-21 fiscal year. This new system, SIMBA, will be integrated with iLab. After SIMBA goes live in iLab (June 29th), you will need to reassign funds to your lab members in iLab - Assigning Funds to Members.  
If you do not see your funds in iLab after June 29th, please contact your financial assistant to ensure that you are listed as the owner of the fund in SIMBA.

Overview of Services

The Zebrafish Functional Genomics Core at Penn State College of Medicine was established to provide the Penn State research community with a modern, centralized facility for housing, breeding and performing experiments with zebrafish, one of the fastest growing model systems in biomedical research, as well as the intellectual infrastructure to do that work. The Zebrafish Functional Genomics Core is a newly designed facility housing a state-of-the-art Pentair Aquatic Habitats recirculating aquaria, housed in the Department of Comparative Medicine.  The facility includes twin 16-rack recirculating systems with independent filtration/purification, an isolated quarantine room with three stand-alone housing systems, a sentinel pathogen-monitoring program, a procedure room, and three independently controlled light-tight breeding cabinets.
