IQB Central laboratory houses core facilities that support researchers with an array of specialized equipment, technologies and services to facilitate innovative science. We provide researchers inside/outside of IQB with techniques developed in Central laboratory.
Animal care core –
provides the following services for researchers using mice.
- Embryo/sperm freezing for stock
- Generation of genetically-modified mice
The Institute for Quantitative Biosciences plays an important role in the analysis of genomic and epigenetic information, as well as higher-order structures of genomic information. The Institute utilizes three next-generation sequencers and a single cell analyzer to perform these analyses and to develop our unique analytical pipeline, covering a wide range of wet-to-dry analytical techniques. In addition to in-house research, the Institute collaborates with other research groups to perform high-quality genetic research.
Mass Spectrometry and Proteomics core –
enables researchers to investigate the complexity of proteomes by offering a wide range of qualitative and quantitative proteomics, including the identification of proteins and their interactions, the analysis of post-translational modifications, the quantification of proteins using stable-isotope labeling, and more challenging structural elucidation through chemical cross-linking.
Cell analysis core –
offers access to flowcytometry, cell culture, DeltaVision and cryostat
