The NERC Biomolecular Analysis Facility provides access to high-level genomics, metabolomics and bioinformatics provision through its four nodes. NBAF offers the very latest, class-leading technologies, including next-generation sequencing (Roche 454, Illumina and IonTorrent), Sanger sequencing, microarray- and sequencing-based genotyping and expression profiling including the in silico design of oligoarrays (Agilent, Nimblegen). NBAF also supports metabolomics, medium-scale genotyping, bioinformatics and advanced data analysis techniques (genome and transcriptome assembly and annotation, expression analysis, etc.).
NBAF is funded by the UK Natural Environment Research Council (NERC) and is supported by NERC Services and Facilities. You can read a copy of last year’s Facility Annual Report (2013-14) here: 2013-14 NBAF Annual Report
