The Facility maintains a wide array of core research equipment, from standard machinery like ultracentrifuges to cutting edge tools such as next generation DNA sequencers, which amount to 70 different kinds of instruments. The facility is dedicated to fostering collaborations with researchers both of NIBB and other academic institutions worldwide by providing these tools as well as expertise. Our current focus is supporting functional genomics that utilizes mass spectrometers and DNA sequencers. We also act as a bridge between experimental biology and bioinformatics.
