Research Facilities

Our highly interdisciplinary research is supported by a wide range of facilities incorporating the latest technologies:

Genomics

Genomics

The Genomics Research Facility offers bespoke Next Generation Sequencing projects and library preparation. In house we have an Illumina MiSeq sequencing platform and NimbleGen microarray scanner. We are here for consultation, and to support and advise you on your Genomics needs.

Imaging

Imaging

The Life Sciences Imaging Suite contains state-of-the-art electron and light microscopes. Our cryo-capable equipment enables us to work with a wide range of sample types including proteins, synthetic nano particles and polymer vesicle preparations.

MDC

Medicines Discovery Catapult

The Catapult facilities are targeted at developing new complex biological assays and advanced biochemical analysis, utlising the first ‘quad’ solid state NMR probe in the UK. These facilities will enable the industrial and academic communities to innovate together for better medicines. Advanced mass spectrometry and acoustic liquid handling in the facility will support advanced screening and target validation to identify future therapies for complex diseases.
Proteomics facility

Proteomics

The Proteomics Research Technology Platform houses internationally competitive MS-based instrumentation. The Facility undertakes collaborative proteomics-based projects with both UK and international academic or commercial institutions on a number of both well characterised and novel organisms. Projects include protein profiling, quantitative proteomic studies, phosphorylation and post-translational modification mapping.

Phytobiology

Phytobiology

Phytobiology combines Controlled Environment and Grodome facilities for the growth of a range of plants under defined environmental conditions. The facility also provides laboratory space for pathology, plant tissue culture and plant physiological work.

Field trials 

Field and Glasshouse Research Trials

Wellesbourne campus is equipped to undertake small-scale field vegetable research trials and other crops may also be considered. In addition to the main experimental areas there are a number of unique specialist fields for studies relating to a range of insect pests, soil borne diseases and nutrient uptake work. The site has a wide range of protected crop facilities including high grade containment glass.

We also provide ecological advice and services:

Bat 

Bat Genotyping Service

We assist ecologists carrying out bat surveys, using a DNA-based method for bat identification from guano samples. An advantage of this over standard bat detection methods is that bat identification can take place even i the absence of acual bat sightings.
