The main purpose of the Biological Molecular Laboratory is to support the different research lines carried out by scientist in our institute.
This laboratory is equipped with the technical resources necessary to develop the basic molecular biology protocols.
The study of nucleics acids (DNA and RNA) is our essential work, although working whit proteins is possible too.
Some routine analyses performed:
DNA / RNA extraction quantification and purification
Nucleics acids extraction from different organisms (bacteria, yeast, fungi, animals, plants) and origins like environmental samples (soils, sea water, sediments, salterns..) and pure cultures
Polymerase Chain Reaction (PCR)
Gel preparation (agarose, acrylamide). Polyacrylamide Gel Electrophoresis (PAGE), Temperature gradient Gel Electrophoresis (TGGE), Denaturing Gradient Gel electrophoresis (DGGE), Pulsed Field Gel Electrophoresis (PFGE).
Gel documentation and analysis system for fluorescence, chemiluminescence and proteomics applications.
Emzymatic manipulation of Nucleic Acid
Digestion, ligation and labeling
Molecular Cloning Methods
Construction of genome DNA Librarys.
DNA Sequence Analyses
