Zebrafish Core Facility

Zebrafish (Danio Rerio) is a small freshwater fish that has gained increasing use as a scientific model organism during recent years. As a model organism, the genome of zebrafish can be easily modified using transgenesis and targeted mutagenesis. The externally developing eggs provide a convenient, economic and ethical model for various in vivo studies. As […]

Structural Bioinformatics Laboratory (SBL)

SBL places biological data within the three-dimensional molecular context, exploiting this knowledge to derive better understandings of biological processes, especially related to ligand binding and discovery of novel ligands. We combine data from many sources, public and project-generated, both experimental and in silico. SBL has a state-of-the-art crystallography laboratory, uses European synchrotron facilities for diffraction […]
