Our laboratory is an interdisciplinary research facility, equipped for performing research in the fields of molecular biology, microbiology, organic synthesis, and cell biology. Equipment for protein expression, purification and analysis is available (e.g. Äkta FPLC, incubators, French press). The laboratory also has instrumentation to synthesize and characterize nucleic acids (e.g. ABI DNA/RNA synthesizer, Tecan Nanoquant spectrophotometer, Fuji FLA3000 phosphorimager, BioRad iQ5 qPCR system, Agilent 1100 HPLC, CE Agilent) and to analyse the interaction of nucleic acids with target molecules (e.g. Biacore 3000, ITC, Microscale thermophoresis, Tecan microtiterplate reader, LiCor Odyssey infrared imager). Also, we have a standard chemistry laboratory and cell culture facilities for culturing eukaryotic cells, equipped with standard instruments (e.g. NMR, microscope, fluorescence microscope, flow cytometry, confocal microscopy including "uncaging"-equipment for light-control of molecules) and access to an isotope laboratory to work with 32P-labelled nucleic acids.
