Genetics & Molecular Biotechnology Laboratory
Key research areas
Functional and comparative genomics, Population genetics and phylogeography, environmental genomics, biotechnology, marine biodiversity
A state-of-the-art laboratory supports the genetic and genomic research conducted in IMBBC, but also other laboratories from HCMR. It also supports research of other academic institutions in Greece and abroad, accommodating PhD and MSc students, as well as users of Transnational Access (TA) projects.
The lab is coupled with the DNA Sequencing facility of IMBBC.
