Genomic, Transcriptomic, Proteomics and Metabolomics Facilities
Pyrosequencing™, Sanger sequencing, fragment analysis The institute acquired a 454/Roche GS FLX sequencing instrument through funding from the Prefecture of Crete. This state-of-the art instrument now forms part of IMBBC's well equipped genome sequencing platform. For more details, sequencing options and pricing please contact Dr. P. Kasapidis or Dr. E. Sarropoulou.
The Institute of Marine Biology and Genetics recently purchased a Skyscan 1172 micro-computertomograph. This technology uses x-rays to create cross-sections of small objects (several microns to centimetres). From these cross-sections, virtual models can be created without destroying the original organism. The MicroCT scanner can be used to scan both hard- and soft-bodied organisms, but also fossils, materials and other small-sized structures. If you are interested in using the MicroCT services for your research, please contact Dr. Christos Arvanitidis.
