Molecular biosciences

Molecular biology is the study of biology on a molecular level including the structure, function, and makeup of biologically important molecules such as DNA, RNA, and proteins. The field of molecular biology involves many other areas of biology such as biochemistry and genetics.

The BRF houses new, cutting edge molecular biology equipment to enable researchers in interrogating DNA, RNA, proteins and their interactions.

Additionally there are skilled consultancy staff to support researchers at the forefront of biomolecular scientific discovery.  Our comprehensive suite of services include workhorse sequencing platforms for fast, cheap sequencing as well as all the major high throughput sequencing platforms, supported by in-house bioinformatic expertise, and high throughput Real-time PCR platforms.
